Abstract

The Energy Supply Model is a simulation model for detailed planning of a regional energy system from the primary energy inputs to secondary energy distribution to the final user. The model structure consists of a network of elementary allocation, collection and conversion processes. Thirteen different primary and seven secondary energy forms are considered. The model incorporates some twenty-five conversion processes. All presently conceivable energy forms and conversion processes are included. Exports, imports, as well as concentrated and distributed waste energies are accounted for. Primary and secondary energy costs, capital investment in conversion plants and the number of plants are computed. The flexibility of the model allows the simulation of a wide variety of possible energy supply systems.
