Research Talk #12

Flyer Research Talk #12

Dear Students of the School of Business and Economics,

The twelfth Research Talk in this series will be taking place in May.

In this series, scientists from RWTH Aachen University and selected researchers from other universities present their exciting research in a clear and understandable way. At these events, students will gain meaningful insights into the current challenges that the various fields of economic research are facing.

We cordially invite you to attend Research Talk #12 via Zoom.

Dr. Lars Nolting

Chair for Energy System Economics
The electricity comes from the socket, right? AI-based metamodeling to assess security of electricity supply

How likely are interruptions in the power supply in view of current upheavals in the energy system? How can security of supply be assessed in a well-founded manner in the context of increasing systemic complexity? Finally, to what extent can modern methods based on artificial intelligence (AI) help to ensure the reliability of the electricity supply in the future? Among other things, the industrial engineer Lars Nolting investigated these questions as part of his doctoral thesis and coined the term "complexity dilemma" in the context of the analysis of highly complex energy systems and introduced AI-based metamodeling as a way to cope with it. He will present this content as part of Research Talk #12.

In order to facilitate our planning for the event, please register briefly for Research Talk #11 at the following link: After successful registration, we will send you the participation link and all necessary information via email a few days before the event.

We are looking forward to an exciting Research Talk #11.
