Computational research on the energy transition plays a vital role in revolutionizing the way we generate, distribute, and utilize energy. By leveraging advanced algorithms, simulations, and data analytics, ZIB’s researchers can model and help to optimize various aspects of the energy transition. In a variety of projects, they help to optimize energy distribution networks, or investigate optimal strategies for utilizing existing infrastructure of hydrogen transport, for example. Additionally, computational research enables the exploration of different scenarios and policy interventions, allowing policymakers to make informed decisions for a sustainable and resilient energy future. By harnessing the power of computation, researchers can accelerate the transition to clean and renewable energy sources, paving the way for a greener and more sustainable world.
