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.

Designing a Model for the Global Energy System—GENeSYS-MOD: An Application of the Open-Source Energy Modeling System (OSeMOSYS)

A path for the global energy system up to 2050 is developed, presenting a new application of the open-source energy modeling system (OSeMOSYS) to the community, with main focus on interdependencies between traditionally segregated sectors: electricity, transportation, and heating; which are all included in the model.

OSeMOSYS Energy Modeling Using an Extended UTOPIA Model

An extended version of this model to help non-expert individuals fully grasp its powerful yet easy-to-use capabilities and for energy professionals new to the field of energy modeling to learn how to use a techno-economic approach is proposed.

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.

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.
