|Primary Purpose||The Global Energy System Model (GENeSYS-MOD) calculates the lowest-cost-solutions for the transition pathway towards largely decarbonized energy systems. It includes the three demand sectors electricity, heat, and transport and utilizes a large set of available technologies to be considered. GENeSYS-MOD is based on the GAMS version of the OSeMOSYS framework, which has been enhanced and expanded. The first version of GENeSYS-MOD covered a global model application, as well as model additions, such as new transportation equations and a new trade system. GENeSYS-MOD v2.0 is currently in development (planned release 2018) and will feature even more upgrades and additions, including endogenous grid expansion capabilities, changes to intertemporal efficiency calculations, and performance optimization. GENeSYS-MOD can either be used as a model application (with all data being made publically available) , or as a model framework for own implementations and expansions.|

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!
