Scottish government has invited proposals to develop a national energy system model. See details
The ADVANCE project has issued an open call for participation in a community study on model diagnostics (see here).
The ADVANCE Diagnostics study aims to characterize and compare the behavior of energy-economy and integrated assessment models based on a set of diagnostic scenarios and indicators. You will find a more complete description of the ADVANCE activity, including its scope and protocol, at here.
If your modeling team is interested in participating in the ADVANCE model diagnostics activity, please contact either Elmar Kriegler or Volker Krey.
Instructions on how to participate can be found at here.
Also note that all teams participating in the ADVANCE study must submit their first diagnostic scenarios by 11 March 2015.
The Joint Research Center/Institute of Energy and Transport has just published the ETRI 2014 Report, which provides up-to-date cost and performance characteristics of the present and future European energy technology portfolio until 2050.
Call for Abstracts for the International BE4 Workshop: Including Behaviour in Energy/Engineering/Economy/Environment models
The aim of the workshop is to bring together energy system researchers with expertise and interest in representing behaviour in whole-system energy/economy/engineering/environment (E4) models. The Workshop is co-funded by ETSAP and WholeSEM.
More details can be found here.
Since September 2011, ETASP E-TechDS is working in cooperation with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to develop and update briefs on renewable energy technologies.
A discussion forumhas been set up to facilitate multilateral discussions on various ETSAP issues. ETSAP members are encouraged to register and participate.
ETSAP members can now access the ETSAP-TIAM model.
You may obtain a fully functional evaluation version of the MARKAL/TIMES, and GAMS, running under the
ANSWER and/or VEDA "shells" upon execution of the ETSAP Letter of Agreement governing access to, and use
of, ETSAP Tools. here
