A new version of the oemof database extension package oemof.db is now available.
This week, the first version of the oemof-application renpassG!S has been released!
renpassG!S is an easy-to-use application designed to model the cost-minimal dispatch of energy supply systems. Technically speaking, it is a so-called numerical partial equilibrium model of a liberalised electricity market often referred to as fundamental model.
More information and some screenshots of possible outcomes can be found here: https://github.com/znes/renpass_gis
We proudly present the totally revised version of oemof!
Now oemof is more flexible, better documented and ready to join for new contributors and users.
The framework provides the basis for a great range of different energy system model types, ranging from LP bottom-up (power and heat) economic dispatch models with optional investment to MILP operational unit commitment models.
We achieved to goals with this updated demandlib version
- Versioning scheme is corrected
- Demandlib works when installed via pip without appending paths to PYTHONPATH
Due to some changes in the pvlib API, we had to adapt the pv model of the feedinlib. Now everything works fine again.
Together with the pvlib we are planing to reduce the code of feedinlib’s pv model and move missing functionalities directly to the pvlib. This will avoid incompatibility problems in the future.
This release of v0.0.8 includes some bug fixes for the old stable oemof version. Try this update for running projects. For new projects you should check out v0.1beta as this is the future of oemof and includes some major improvements.

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.
The newest version of pyomo (4.3.11377) causes problems so we had to exclude it from the setup file. Now fresh installations will work out of the box again.
The sun finally came out today and so did our April release with new features and bug fixes. Check out the What’s New for more information.
The upcoming month will be especially interesting for the oemof community as the 4th oemof Developer Meeting will take place in the beginning of May. Major organisational and structural issues will be discussed and you can look forward to a great new release. So stay tuned!
