Traditionally models of certain aspects of the energy system as well as holistic energy system models have been developed and used in a proprietary way. In the past decade transparent and reproducible – in short – open models have become more and more relevant within the context of energy transition processes which require a high level of acceptance in society. Open Source and Open Data principles and approaches are key aspects concerning these open models. In this special track it is aimed to discuss barriers, challenges and good practices in the field of open energy system modelling in general and in particular focusing on various thematic examples.
This special track consists of two parts. Part 1 before lunch is looking at Model development and model use as well as at the integration of social factors. Part 2 starts after the lunch break and focusses on electricity grids and the heating sector.
Block 1: Model development and model use:
Block 2: Integration of social factors
