Thank you for joining the 2022 oemof spring meeting

We want to thank all participants of this year’s oemof spring meeting. It’s always a joy to have a few days reserved for concentrated discussions around the things you create and investigate using oemof. Some of you already provided their slides, these are now available in the collection of oemof publications.

Presentation held at the first afternoon of the meeting which took place in the meeting hall of the meeting hall of the Danish minority living in Flensburg.

This year’s spring meeting wasn’t only the biggest in-person meeting but also probably the most international one. It was located almost in sight of the Danish/German border. Some of the almost 40 participants arrived from Italy and Spain just for the meeting. Not to speak about contributions from people who stay in Germany for longer. This confirmed us in our decision to also keep the organisation of the oemof association in English. (Side node: It was in the middle of the association’s general assembly that we realised that the about ten persons joining that particular session were able to understand German.)

Special thanks also go to Simon and Uwe for the organisation, and to the Department Energy and Environmental Management for hosting the meeting at the Europa Universität Flensburg.

oemof general assembly 2022/04

We invite you to a general assembly (GA) of the oemof association that will take place on the 19th of May as part of the oemof user/dev meeting in Flensburg. The assembly will be located at the meetings venue (European University Flensburg Building VIL1, Auf dem Campus 1, Flensburg) and start at 14:00.

Agenda:

  1. Opening and welcome
  2. Agreement on the agenda
  3. Acceptance of the minutes of the last GA
  4. Changed statute
  5. Bylaws and membership fee regulations
  6. Miscellaneous

The changed statute can be found at GitHub (binding German version, informative English translation). The changes are marginal and probably required by the German authorities. We decided to let the GA decide before the authorities file a formal complaint. Formally, the decision will be on the full (changed) statute rather than the changes, as it makes live easier to have everything in one protocol. According to our statute, all members can already vote on the changed statute. To do so, you can leave a review (approve/object) at the PR at GitHub. Alternatively, you can write an email to patrik.schoenfeldt@dlr.de to get instructions how to vote by (paper) mail.
