|Primary Purpose||Optimisation Framework for the GENESYS Energy System Model (implemented in C++) Description of development corridors for technologies and environments Investment Corridor of potential system configurations Configuration of Regions and Links between Boundary definition for Scenario Investigation Flexibility of model settings to investigate targeted time span based on existing components, new investments, green field. Operation of the Model can be on hourly basis, but flexible adaptions can be implemented Analysis of of output in a series of python scripts|

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!
