Different Cost of Renewables
#1
Hi,


I am interested to know what is the best or most convenient way to have different sets of costs of renewables. One conservative and the other more optimistic. Since the costs of different technologies are included in the input files. I was wondering whether there are any methods or features in VEDA that I can use to import two sets of input for costs to avoid syncing all the input files every time I change the costs in the input.

Thank you very much for your time!

Yes, VEDA has many features for defining scenario-specific datasets.  The basic idea is to create new scenario files (Scen_*) for such datasets, e.g. for conservative and more optimistic cost data, which will override the Base estimates in your model when the scenario is included in a run. You can, for example, use multipliers for creating new datasets where the baseline data in your model are adjusted to have higher or lower values, according to model year, groups of processes/commodities etc.. However, as these are VEDA features, I suggest to post the question on the VEDA Forum, where the VEDA developers/experts can help you.

Thank you, Antti!  I will post on the VEDA Forum.
