oemof evaluated in scientific article

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.

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.
