Abstract

The process of modelling energy systems is accompanied by challenges inherently connected with mathematical modelling. Continue reading “Preprint of oemof research paper published”

Improved website under oemof.org

Yesterday we launched our improved website which now contains a library description, a list of applications and a gallery under the new domain www.oemof.org. We are planning to make this site the central place for people who are interested in oemof by providing a general overview. If you have any questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

oemof at the the 4th openmod meeting – short talk and discussions

The GitHub presence and the new structure of oemof was presented at the 4th openmod meeting at KTH in Stockholm along with 16 other short talks of the international community. Many common working fields have been detected and discussed which will hopefully be continued in the coming months.

Framework concept of oemof inspires discussion about OpenEnergy Platform

At 3rd Open Energy Modelling Workshop design of the OpenEnergy Platform was discussed in a breakout group. This Platform that will be released in 2016 serves as hub for energy system modelers to improve visibility, communication and in general support development open source licensed energy system models.

Oemof and in particular its modular and community based approach contributed valuable input to the discussion about the OpenEnergy Platform.
