Planning and Low-carbon Economic Operation of Integrated Energy Systems
The integrated energy system (IES) is an important means to consume clean energy, avoid excessive carbon emissions, and promote the green-oriented transition of energy. Various energy networks such as electric energy, natural gas, and thermal energy in the region are integrated by IES. IES realizes the coupling and interaction between various heterogeneous energy subsystems, and efficient and low-carbon use of energy is promoted. However, with the increasing requirements for green and low-carbon development levels and the economic needs of users, planning and low-carbon economic operation of IES are facing new challenges. At the same time, the carbon trading mechanism, power to gas (P2G) technology, vehicle to grid (V2G) technology, carbon capture，utilization and storage (CCUS) technology and demand response technology provide more carbon reduction means for IES management. Moreover, the low-carbon transition of energy is provided with theoretical and technical support.
This special session aims to cover the technical issues involved in the coordinated planning of multi-type energy systems and the operation of the IES low-carbon economy, and more solutions are offered for energy system carbon reduction. The session solicits original research papers that target at innovative approaches and technologies related to IES planning and the low-carbon economy operation.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• New technology to improve utilization of clean energy in IES
• Multi-type energy storage coordinated operation planning
• Application of CCUS and P2G
• Analysis of the impact of carbon trading mechanism
• Research on the correlation between V2G and IES planning
• The carbon allowance allocation policy of IES
• The low carbon economy scheduling method of IES
