The work programme of nfdi4energy includes seven Task Areas (TAs) as displayed in Figure 1. The first three TAs address different stakeholders in energy system research: The research community (TA1), public & society (TA2), and the industry (TA3). Especially, including the society into energy research data remains an open methodological question and is therefore especially addressed in TA2. TA4 focuses on FAIR research data, needed e.g. within simulations, which are in the centre of TA5. To determine more requirements and to evaluate the community services in TAs 1 to 5, we define three standard use cases of energy system research. These use cases are examples of three general types of energy system research projects, which should be supported by the developed community services in TAs 1 to 5. Finally, TA7 covers the overall organisation as well as the engagement with the NFDI community.
The full work programme can be found within the published project proposal on zenodo.
