A vision shared by many experts is that future communities (residential, commercial and industrial) will be nearly self sufficient in their energy production and will adopt distributed energy resources, energy storage and sustainable demand side management measures. It is also expected that consumers will be able to respond to real time pricing of energy in retail market and intelligently plan for their energy use. In this talk, we will discuss models and tools that support DER planning and control for such energy smart communities and systems. These models integrate engineering features of distributed resources, demand side dynamics and externalities such as weather patterns, price of fuel and energy market dynamics. We also argue that planning for such capital-intensive systems should take into account both short-term and long-tem volatilities. We conclude our talk with some notes on energy networks and hubs of the future.
