  author={Konstantin L{\"o}ffler and Karlo Hainsch and Thorsten Burandt and Pao-Yu oei and Claudia Kemfert and Christian von Hirschhausen},
This paper develops a path for the global energy system up to 2050, presenting a new application of the open-source energy modeling system (OSeMOSYS) to the community. It allows quite disaggregate energy and emission analysis: Global Energy System Model (GENeSYS-MOD) uses a system of linear equations of the energy system to search for lowest-cost solutions for a secure energy supply, given externally defined constraints, mainly in terms of CO2-emissions. The general algebraic modeling system… 

GENeSYS-MOD v2.0 - Enhancing the Global Energy System Model: Model improvements, framework changes, and European data set

This Data Documentation presents the second version of the Global Energy System Model (GENeSYSMOD), an open-source energy system modeling framework that focuses on the coupling of the three traditionally segregated sectors electricity, heat, and transportation including all three sectors and their interconnections in the model.

Decarbonization of Australia’s Energy System: Integrated Modeling of the Transformation of Electricity, Transportation, and Industrial Sectors

To achieve the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal, current energy systems must be transformed. Australia represents an interesting case for energy system transformation modeling: with a

Emission Pathways Towards a Low-Carbon Energy System for Europe: A Model-Based Analysis of Decarbonization Scenarios

The aim of this paper is to showcase different decarbonization pathways for Germany and Europe with varying Carbon dioxide (CO2) constraints until 2050. The Global Energy System Model (GENeSYS-MOD)

OSeMOSYS-PuLP: A Stochastic Modeling Framework for Long-Term Energy Systems Modeling

This paper presents a methodological framework for an empirical deterministic–stochastic modeling approach to utilize large real-world datasets in long-term energy systems modeling and adds the feature of Monte Carlo simulations to the existing open-source energy modeling system (the OSeMOSYS modeling framework).

Energy Transition Pathways to a low-carbon Europe in 2050: the degree of cooperation and the level of decentralization

In the framework of the Paris Agreement, the European Union (EU) will have to firmly set decarbonization targets to 2050. However, the viability on these targets is an ongoing discussion. The

Designing a Global Energy System Based on 100% Rwables for 2050: GENeSYS-MOD: An Application of the Open-Source Energy Modelling System (OSeMOSYS)

This paper develops a path for the global energy system up to 2050, presenting a new application of the open source energy systems model OSeMOSYS to the community, and includes an application of GENeSYS-MOD to analyze decarbonization scenarios at the global level, broken down into 10 regions.

Energy/Environmental Modeling with the MARKAL Family of Models

The MARKAL family of models has been contributing to energy/environmental planning since the early J980’s and was enlarged by members to model material flows, to employ stochastic programming (SP) to address future uncertainties, and to model endogenous technology learning using mixed integer programming (MIP) techniques.

On the role of solar photovoltaics in global energy transition scenarios

The global energy system has to be transformed towards high levels of sustainability in order to comply with the COP21 agreement. Solar photovoltaic (PV) offers excellent characteristics to play a


South American countries have diverse and abundant energy resources ranging from oil, natural gas and coal to considerable potentials of other renewable sources, such as biomass large hydro. These

LEAPs and Bounds—an Energy Demand and Constraint Optimised Model of the Irish Energy System

This paper builds a model of energy demand and supply for Ireland with a focus on evaluating, and providing insights for, energy efficiency policies. The demand-side comprises sectoral sub-models,

Evaluation of a proposal for reliable low-cost grid power with 100% wind, water, and solar

Policy makers should treat with caution any visions of a rapid, reliable, and low-cost transition to entire energy systems that relies almost exclusively on wind, solar, and hydroelectric power, and find significant shortcomings in the analysis of Jacobson et al. (2015).
