Market liberalization and concerns about climate change have stimulated an increased use of distributed power sources such as combined heat and power and renewable energy systems. To cope with the volatility and the wide spread use of alternative power supplies and storage systems, novel concepts for the grid integration, automation and control is needed. In addition, energy efficiency and demand side management are enabling technologies to master the balance between supply and demand. Influencing the energy consumption and production habits of prosumers requires detailed analysis to estimate the resulting effects on the future energy system. Consequently, energy research must not only concentrate on solutions of individual technical problems. It is equally important to devise comprehensive interdisciplinary approaches to and studies of complex questions.
