Last week the 8th oemof developer meeting took place in Flensburg. More and more people use the oemof framework for their projects and are ready to participate in the developing process.
The developer meeting is always a good place to meet the people behind the scenes, introduce own problems on energy system modelling and gradually learn about the structures of the developing process.

From 2nd to 6th September 2018, the Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin supported a training course on sustainable energy concepts at the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Muscat, Oman. The course, jointly led by experts from the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the Research Council of Oman (TRC) and the Centre for Community Service & Continuing Education at SQU, applied oemof to model cooling concepts in Oman.

The user meeting takes place on May 8th, 2018 from 10 am. You can find the agenda and further information here. Optionally we can have a dinner in the evening and take the morning of the next day to continue our work in the working groups. But if you can come for only one day that’s totally fine. We look forward to welcoming you in Magdeburg!
