Our three research fields are Transformation of Energy Systems, Mobility with Renewable Energy, and Off-Grid Systems. We conduct applied research to scientifically support the long-term transition of the energy supply system towards renewable energy.
We are looking for a
to work on the subject
within the Research Unit Off-Grid Systems.
In the Research Unit Off-Grid Systems, we focus on strategies for renewable-energy-based power supply in devel-oping and emerging regions. We apply open source methods and software, collaborate with our partners on equal terms and emphasize the sustainability of our research results.
We are offering a student position in context of the PeopleSuN project, which seeks to improve access to sustainable energy in rural Nigeria. In the project we develop planning tools for off-grid electricity supply systems. After conducting surveys on electricity demand in rural Nigerian communities we will develop a demand modelling tool that will create typical load profiles for different consumer types.
We envisage to build this tool upon the existing Python based open-source tool RAMP. We search for a motivated student assistant who will implement code adaptations in order to connect the RAMP tool to our database and to automate the demand modelling process.
