dc.description.abstract
Novel energy technologies are typically associated with large investments and environmental impacts generated in the construction phase. In this work, we present a systematic approach to optimally design residential energy systems, considering (prospective) costs and life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of a large set of low-carbon energy technologies and sources. To achieve this, an optimization problem has been formulated and is tested on several scenarios considering climate-specific heat and electricity demand as well as scenario-specific conditions, such as the flexibility of grid electricity tariffs and associated GHG intensities. With GHG-intensive grid electricity supply and flexible energy tariffs, we recommend to implement policy measures to encourage the investment in residential solar PV-coupled batteries and heat pumps, especially in the near future. The inclusion of environmental impacts generated from the production of energy technologies cannot be neglected; they should be considered during the design phase of residential energy systems. Current high electricity and natural gas prices result in the installation of low-carbon energy system components. This implies that battery systems are already an effective option to reduce the reliance on carbon-intensive and expensive energy supply. And lastly, the large-scale deployment of residential lithium-ion batteries might be limited by global lithium production. This implies that energy system designers should consider alternative electricity storage technologies in their energy technology portfolio.
