# Optimal Design, Operation, and Planning of Distributed Energy Systems Through the Multi-Energy Hub Network Approach

## Abstract

Urban energy systems are responsible for the majority of the energy consumption around the world and they play an important role in energy issues such as economic security and climate change. Furthermore, there are growing concerns about the depletion of fossil fuel resources and the negative effect they have had on the ecosystem. To this end, a holistic and integrated approach is necessary for the optimal design and operation of urban energy systems that makes expressive betterment in energy efficiency and environmental impact. The aim of this research is to develop an optimum methodology for communities in the context of energy hub. The energy hub is a novel concept to systematically address energy requirements. Future of urban energy systems rely on the transition to cleaner fuels such as hydrogen and renewable energy sources like solar and wind. The energy hub concept has the potential to reduce the negative environmental impacts by enabling the benefits of renewable power and clean energy technologies. The potential to connect different sectors of the urban community and its optimization is of particular interest in the energy hub network modeling concept as it will also lead to socio-economic and environmental benefits.

In this chapter, first, the literature review of distributed energy systems based on energy hub is explained. Then, framework development is described. The economic and environmental feasibility of the proposed approach is investigated based on three case studies for urban energy systems.
