It is a prerequisite for continuation of salary payment that the previous progress is approved at the time of the evaluation.
Scholarship Open for International Students: No
Scholarship Description: The hypothesis of the PhD project is that storage will be a necessity in future energy systems based on fluctuating renewable energy sources. Future electricity systems will to an even higher degree be based on fluctuating renewable energy sources and heat supply is developing in the same direction through the use of solar collectors and e.g. wind-power-driven heat pumps. As a consequence, more system flexibility is required in the form of storage systems. This PhD project will develop methodologies of analysis and investigate the means of adding system flexibility through geothermal storage for steam and hot water as well as other storage options. Steam storages for waste incineration plants means electricity production may be temporally detached from waste incineration and heat storages for more conventional temperatures will play an even more significant role in the future.
