Marian Süße studied industrial engineering at the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences in Zwickau (Diplom FH) and the Technical University of Chemnitz (Master of Science). The focus of his education here was on automotive engineering as well as factory and production planning. After internships at OEMs in the automotive sector, he started as an research scientist at Fraunhofer IWU during the master's degree and has the position as a research assistant after the master's degree in 2017. In 2019 and 2020 he was responsible for the group "Factory Design and Simulation" and since 2021 he is head of the department Factory System Design and Production Planning. The department combines aspects of factory and production planning with issues of sustainability and sustainable energy supply. In both areas, there is a focus on the use of various simulation tools.

Even though the commercial and industrial battery storage market has been the subject of discussion for many years, most use cases were not economically viable because of low energy prices and relatively high system costs. Value stacking - the combination of different use cases - has been the preferred way to finance battery storage systems. In 2022, the skyrocketing electricity prices changed all of this while hitting the manufacturing industry hard. In this session, we will be discussing the challenges of the new market environment and will be showing how battery storage combined with renewable energy generation can help minimize energy costs.
