Optimization webtool EHDO goes online
This week, our new optimization tool "EHDO" went online.
EHDO is a free webtool supporting the planning process of complex energy supply systems. The tool has been developed by the Institute for Energy Efficient Buildings and Indoor Climate at RWTH Aachen University.
EHDO supports the planning process of energy supply systems and helps to estimate the potential of renewable energies and future energy carriers like hydrogen. A wide range of innovative technologies like fuel cell, electrolyzer, hydrogen storage, photovoltaic and wind turbines as well as biomass and waste-to-energy technologies can be considered in the tool. EHDO uses an advanced mixed-integer linear program (MILP) in the background in order to find the optimal system structure from a large number of different system configurations. We thank the Gurobi Optimization, Inc., who supported this tool by granting a free license for their high-performance solver.
The tool is available for free: http://ehdo.eonerc.rwth-aachen.de
