Best paper award at the 2019 conference on energy informatics
Lionel Bloch and Jordan Holweger were in Salzburg for the conference on energy informatics 2019. Their paper was elected as the best paper among the 57 accepted papers.
The 2019 conference on energy informatics was held in Salzburg from the 26th to the 27th of September 2019. Lionel Bloch was presenting his work on the impact of tariff structures on the optimal design and operation of a PV system and storage. The results highlights the potential of new tariff structures such as capacity-based (charges are proportional to maximum monthly power), or block-rate (energy price depends on the power at which it is consumed), to achieve a more grid friendly operation of PV and battery system while still enabling acceptable pay-back period for the system owner.
