Abstract

A method for regional energy targeting and supply chain synthesis is presented. A demand-driven approach is applied to assess the feasible ways for transferring energy from renewable sources to customers in a given region. The studied region is partitioned into a number of clusters using the Regional Energy Clustering (REC) algorithm. The REC targets aim at minimizing the system carbon footprint. Energy supply chain synthesis is performed within each cluster using the P-graph framework. The synthesis algorithm generated a maximal structure containing all feasible options, from which solution structures were obtained. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
