Model usage The framework is currently developed and applied by the author institutions as well as additional institutions like (EURAC (developing an italian model); Beuth Hochschule (heating system models); Bremen University (Master theses);...)

If you find bugs or if you have ideas to improve the Open Energy Platform, you are welcome to add your comments to the existing issues on GitHub.
You can also fork the project and get involved.

Please note that the platform is still under construction and therefore the design of this page is still highly volatile!
