clicSAND for OSeMOSYS: a user-friendly interface using open-source optimisation software for energy system modelling analysis

A new interface is presented—clicSAND—for OSeMOSYS, which shortens the learning curve and supports beginner energy modellers to perform long-term investment analyses efficiently and shows the results achieved by inexperienced users following a three-week training course.

OSeMOSYS Global, an open-source, open data global electricity system model generator

OSeMOSYS Global allows for full user flexibility in determining the time slice structure and geographic scope of the model and datasets, and is built using the widely used fully open-source OSeMosYS energy system model.

Toward SALib 2.0: Advancing the accessibility and interpretability of global sensitivity analyses

Sensitivity analysis is now considered a standard practice in environmental modeling. Several open-source libraries, such as the Sensitivity Analysis Library (SALib), have been published in the

GIS approach for modeling the electricity grid of small islands using open-source data: The case of Isola del Giglio

The rise of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) has fueled the development of various tools contributing to the electrification process. The goal of this paper is to display an alternative usage

Advancing the representation of reservoir hydropower in energy systems modelling: The case of Zambesi River Basin

Improved representation of reservoir hydropower generation in energy systems modelling is advanced by explicitly including the most relevant hydrological constraints, such as time-dependent water availability, hydraulic head, evaporation losses, and cascade releases, in an open-source energy modelling framework.

Long-term basin-scale hydropower expansion under alternative scenarios in a global multisector model

Hydropower is an important source of renewable, low-carbon energy. Global and regional energy systems, including hydropower, may evolve in a variety of ways under different scenarios. Representation

Potential Climate Change Risks to Meeting Zimbabwe’s NDC Goals — And how to Become Resilient

Zimbabwe has ambitious and laudable GHG mitigation targets. Compared to a coal based future emissions reductions by 33% per capita by 2030 are targeted, by implementing a set of identified nationally



Representation of Balancing Options for Variable Renewables in Long-Term Energy System Models: An Application to OSeMOSYS

The growing complexity and the many challenges related to fast-changing and highly de-carbonised electricity systems require reliable and robust open source energy modelling frameworks. Their


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
