28/02/2024 - Value in Energy Data Webinar: Optimising the energy network based on carbon emissions

The work done in this project aims to explore the potential impact of controlling the UK Electricity Grid based on minimising carbon emissions.  This splits into two parts:

  • Modelling the carbon intensity of gas power plants according to their operating modes using available data
  • Optimising generator dispatch using reinforcement learning across a simplified model of the electricity grid.

Speaker
