Planning subtask A2: Checking for the availability of data sources, tools and competence
Example: Local energy planning in Hylkje

This case study has been developed in several steps. The initial work for data gathering and the preliminary optimization has been carried out as a part of an MSc study at NTNU (Norwegian university of Science and Technology).

The case has been developed in collaboration with the representatives of the local energy supply company in Hylkje (the main decision maker).  

The calculations and optimizations for the case study have been performed using spreadsheets and a novel energy system simulation model (eTransport) developed at SINTEF Energy Research in Trondheim, Norway.
