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.
In the beginning of November the next oemof developer meeting takes place in Flensburg.
Our developer meetings take place every six months and aim at the further development of new features and functions within oemof. Moreover we will discuss the future community structure and the collaborative programming process.
Anyone who is interested is cordially invited to participate. Please find detailled information and the topics we collected up to now here: https://github.com/oemof/organisation/wiki/Meeting-November-2018
If you want to be part of it or have topics to add, please contact us via email@example.com or https://github.com/oemof/organisation/issues/31
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.

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
If you do not have access to the sciencedirect network you can download the paper for free until the beginning of September using this link.
If you are interested in obtaining the original version of the paper after the free phase until the beginning of September you can contact us to get your personal copy. Alternatively, you can download an e-print of the last version on arXiv.
Some bug fixes, a revised storage component, more tests and some documentation improvements are worth a summer release 🌞🌞🌞
See the whatsnew section of the documentation for detailed information.
Use github for bug reports and the forum for user questions.

Our second oemof user meeting was successfully held in May 2018 at Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg. Thanks to all participants for joining us. We were very impressed by the variety of topics that oemof is used for.
