With the new minor release v0.2.3 it is possible to install oemof directly on a Python 3.7 environment.
As nothing else has changed you do not have to update your version if you have v0.2.2 installed.
Look out for the next major release (v0.3.0) scheduled for January 2019 ⛄
The article “A qualitative evaluation approach for energy system modelling frameworks” is published in Energy, Sustainability and Society.
The authors identified ‘complexity’, ‘scientific standards’, ‘utilisation’, ‘interdisciplinary modelling’ and ‘uncertainty’ as the current main challenges of energy system modelling. By means of a case study, oemof’s contribution to tackle these challenges is analysed.
Our oemof article has been finally published in Energy Strategy Reviews.
Some key points that are covered in the article:
* Comparison of oemof and other open models
* Concept, architecture and implementation
* Usage concept
* Mathematical description
