Planning studies

The ongoing decarbonization of power systems is affecting them in a variety of ways, including:

a (r)evolution in the generation mix, the rise of distributed generation, the deployment of energy storage capacity, enhanced interconnections between countries and more integrated power markets. In addition, the electrification of sectors that still rely on fossil fuels is changing demand profiles and power system adequacy.

With our deep experience in the electricity sector, CESI can help you plan your future power system. Our service portfolio includes :

  • Medium- and long-term transmission and distribution grid expansion plans
  • Feasibility studies to assess the economic viability of new assets
  • Integration of renewables into the power system
  • Strategic analysis and roadmaps for implementing smart grids and smart metering  infrastructure
  • Evaluation of transmission and generation adequacy, using probabilistic models to cope with random variables ( CESI Grare )
  • Cost-benefit analysis to assess innovative solutions for system flexibility, such as virtual power plants (VPPs), electric vehicles (EVs), utility-scale batteries and power to gas (P2G)
  • Integration of e-mobility into the power system
  • Decarbonization of hard-to-abate sectors through “green” hydrogen
  • Economic and financial analyses to ensure the bankability of new projects

Our service portfolio also includes analysis of power system operations, such as:  

  • Transmission network studies to optimize operational procedures
  • Design of remedial action plans for severe accidents (defense plans and special protection systems)
  • Restoration procedures for total or partial blackouts and onsite tests
  • Incident and black-out reconstruction
  • Models and algorithms for operational planning and real-time operation
  • Software for supervision and control, management and maintenance of power systems.
