Abstract

The use of renewable energy sources (solar, wind, biomass) and waste for energy generation becomes a necessity. Many energy consumers may need to generate energy. This implies many generation points and the need for a novel approach to designing the architecture of the energy conversion, transportation and distribution networks. The design of energy infrastructures, which enables a change in the pattern of energy conversion and distribution, is described. The concepts of distributed generation from renewables, energy hubs, and energy supply routes are analyzed, and architecture for the design model is presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 18th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering (Prague, Czech Republic 8/24-28/2008).
