OMEGAlpes, an Open-Source Optimisation Model Generation Tool to Support Energy Stakeholders at District Scale

OMEGAlpes is a multi-carrier energy modelling tool to support stakeholders in the preliminary design of district-scale energy systems and aims at making energy models accessible and understandable through its open-source development and the integration of energy stakeholders and their areas of responsibility into the models.

The Potential Of Simulating Energy Systems: The Multi Energy Systems Simulator Model

The developed tool, called Multi Energy Systems Simulator (MESS), is a modular, multi-node model that allows to investigate non optimal solutions by simulating the energy system, and will be presented by a comparison between MESS itself and an optimization model.

Overcoming the disconnect between energy system and climate modeling

A Review of Energy Modeling Tools for Energy Efficiency in Smart Cities

The present review analyzes the different modeling tools available to assess energy systems in smart cities and suggests that the best options are the LEAP, MESSAGEix, and oemof tools.

Fundamentals of Energy Modelling for Positive Energy Districts

This paper aims at investigating and presenting these must haves for modelling PEDs and analyzing them in relation with some of the most common definitions of P EDs to understand how this affects the modelling of a PED.

How Do Energy-Economy Models Compare? A Survey of Model Developers and Users in Canada

Governments at all levels rely on energy-economy models to design climate policy portfolios. Models vary in their purposes and methodologies, yet there is limited research comparing model
