NordNET PhD Autumn School: Modeling Energy System Integration and Sustainable Transport

October 21 - October 25


NordNET is organising an autumn school open to all interested PhD students on energy system modelling, focusing on energy system integration and sustainable transport. The school targets PhD students who have a basic understanding of system modelling or wish for an intense introduction to it. During the course, the students will work through the following theories and topics:

  • Sector integration in energy system models
  • Heat modelling
  • Green gases, electrolyser modelling, gas networks and markets
  • Energy hubs, conversion technologies, and green fuels
  • Modelling transport and the characteristics of transport systems
  • Batteries, electric vehicles, and charging infrastructure
  • Modelling and assessing market designs, policies, and regulations

The course will end with a field trip. Students are asked to hand in small exercise sheets at the end of each day and can receive a certificate equivalent to 5 ECTS.

The teachers

  • Prof. Anne Neumann (NTNU)
  • Prof. Endre Bjørndal (NHH)
  • Prof. Mattia Marinelli (DTU)
  • Prof. Mette Bjørndal (NHH)
  • Prof. Sonia Yeh (Chalmers)
  • Fabian Neumann (TU Berlin)
  • Alexandra Lüth (CBS), Hongyu Zhang (NTNU), Jens Weibezahn (CBS), Lissy Langer (DTU)

Note: the course is free of charge and includes accommodation (twin rooms, single rooms possible for a surcharge) and meals. Travel to/from Gothenburg must be paid by the student


Apply here for the PhD Autumn School by May 31, 2024. Feedback to applications will be sent out by the end of June.
