  • Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship- program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

    Energy system integration – the coordinated planning and operation of the energy system ‘as a whole', across multiple energy carriers, infrastructures, and consumption sectors – is considered as the pathway towards an effective, affordable and deep decarbonisation of the European economy (EC document COM/2020/299 “Powering a climate-neutral economy: An EU Strategy for Energy System Integration”). Buildings are important in this context as they offer ample room to increase energy efficiency and instead of being passive consumers they should take an active role in energy supply and storage. The Environmental Engineering Department of the CTU in Prague has a long track record in research and development of building energy systems. The focus was on indoor environment in terms of occupant thermal comfort, indoor air quality and the energy performance of heating, ventilation and airconditioning systems. However, as the role of buildings will be extended in the integrated energy concept, the focus moves to smart solutions for optimal integration of buildings in modern district energy (both thermal and electrical) systems. The general research topic will be smart building energy systems in relation to indoor environmental quality as well as to energy performance supporting the upcoming system integration strategies. The new postdoc will support our goal to establish a group providing research and expertise in arising topics associated with the activities of the International Energy Agency's Energy in Buildings and Communities (IEA EBC) program, such as: • fuel-shift impact on building energy systems (power-to-heat strategies), • building energy systems as part of energy communities (communities and prosumers support), • building-to-grid interaction (related to both thermal and electrical energy) • building flexibility aggregation • indoor environment in the context of energy system integration strategies • environmental impact of energy system integration strategies.

    Skills/Qualifications

    Computational modeling and simulation is our main research methodology for analyzing and optimizing the energy system integration potential of the built environment within the overall heat and electricity infrastructure. We plan to expand existing building energy simulation software (e.g. TRNSYS, Modelica / Dymola, etc.) with possible extensions via generic simulation tools (e.g. Matlab, Python). Our expectations from the person at postdoc position would be:

    • to be fully involved in the described research within the existing team

    • to be actively involved in research proposal development and acquisition activities

    • to lead the publication activities of research outcomes in relevant impacted journals

    • to collaborate with one of the IEA EBC Annex projects and in this context, to represent our department and CTU in Prague in international research communities.
