MASTER’S THESIS ON THE COMPILE PROJECT: ASSESMENT OF SELF-CONSUMPTION STRATEGIES FOR PROSUMERS AND EnC IN LOCAL ENERGY SYSTEMS
What: Master’s thesis which studies the COMPILE pilot site Luče
When: July 2020
Mr. Bence Rónai comes from Hungary and just finished his Master’s in Renewable Energy at the EIT InnoEnergy Master School. He decided to connect his final master thesis with the COMPILE project and study the self-consumption strategies for prosumers and EnC in local energy system. During his work, he was cooperating with the COMPILE partner and coordinator Laboratory of Energy Policy (LEST) from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana.
The research was done on the real generation and consumption data from the pilot site Luče which were analysed through different scenarios taking into account various control strategies and energy markets. It was assumed that organizing prosumers and their neighbouring households into an EnC would enhance their savings. The results showed that when a community model was applied, the total amount of savings could be almost doubled compared to the individual cases.
A short interview with Mr. Rónai was published on the LEST webpage.
