Dr. Yi Zong
Senior Scientist, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark.

Biography: Yi Zong received the Ph.D. degree in System Engineering and Automation, from the University Complutense, Madrid, Spain, in 2006. Since 2006 she was employed as a Postdoc and Scientist in the Wind Energy Division, Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Roskilde, Denmark. She is currently a Senior Scientist at Center for Electric Power and Energy, the Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark. She has hosted and participated in 20+ research and demonstration projects supported by the Danish funding schemes, the Sino‐Danish collaborations and EU-H2020 schemes in the area of smart grids, industrial microgrids, smart buildings, and integrated energy systems.

Speech Title: Maximizing flexibility through energy system integration: flexible resources, control strategies and practical barriers

Abstract: Denmark’ goal of being independent of fossil energy sources in 2050 puts forward great demands on all energy subsystems (electricity, heat, gas and transportation, etc.) to be operated in a holistic manner. It requires finding solutions from a multi-carrier energy perceptive. A cost-effective, sustainable and secure multi-carrier energy system should be established, in which renewable energy production, infrastructures and consumption can be integrated and coordinated through energy services, active users and enabling technologies such as power-to-heat (P2H), power-to-gas (P2G), energy storage, demand response, etc. to maximize the flexibility.

Firstly, the presentation will talk about the potential technical-economic value of the flexible resources in different energy sectors, which is explicitly identified and characterized from an integrated cross-sectoral system perspective. Secondly, how to achieve the maximum value of different kinds of cross-sectoral options through the optimal design of flexibility-enabling P2H and P2G solutions and applicable advanced control strategies to support wind/solar power integration under different power system conditions, taking into account the operational constraints for each cross-sectoral flexible option in spatial, temporal and capacity etc., and different kinds of operational conflicts will be present in detail based on the preliminary results of the on-going demnstration projects in Denmark. Finally, the practical needs and barriers for enabling P2H and P2G solutions to support renewable energy integration with different energy system setups will be summarized.
