First oemof release 2016: v0.0.3

We released a new version of oemof today. The new version includes some nice features such as the demandlib for calculation of demands, the outputlib for beautiful plots. Additionally the documentation was improved and bugs have been fixed! We implemented a fast-build way for important constraints of the solph-pyomo model. For large models this can be significant faster.

Stay tuned!

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.
