FOREnergy – Energy flexibility in production
Along with the turnaround in energy policy in Germany comes a steady increase in renewable energy sources. Due to the stochastic nature of wind and solar power the energy supply grows volatile resulting in fluctuating energy prices. In this environment, companies are forced to adapt their production plants and systems in a way that they react flexibly to the changes in energy supply.
The aim of the joint research project FOREnergy granted by the Bavarian Research Foundation is to explore concepts and solutions for energy flexibility in production.
