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.

PyPSA meets Africa: Developing an open source electricity network model of the African continent

The pathway to a fully open model and data is outlined to increase the transparency in the African electricity system planning and help strategic planning for upgrades and policy-making for accelerated integration of renewable energy generation and smart grid technologies such as battery storage.

Competitiveness of economic growth based on renewable energy: the case of Uganda to 2035

Emerging economies are experiencing significant growth, which implies a booming demand for energy, especially electricity. In order to meet the 2050 climate target, this growth will have to rely

Multi-Scenario Simulation of a Water–Energy Coupling System Based on System Dynamics: A Case Study of Ningbo City

In this work, based on the concept of collaborative water–energy development, a multi-scenario system dynamics simulation model of a water–energy coupling system was constructed by using the system

Reducing energy system model distortions from unintended storage cycling through variable costs

Energy model distortions may unknowingly appear and represent unrealistic and non-physical e ff ects that can mislead optimal model decisions. A prominent misleading e ff ect is unintended storage



Modeling the Impact of Power Generation on the Water Sector in the North, Eastern and Central African Power Pools

This paper presents the results of a new open-source modelling framework for three African power pools (Central, Eastern and North). The proposed model provides insights regarding the power

An indicative assessment of investment opportunities in the African electricity supply sector

In the coming decades, demand for electricity will increase considerably on the African continent. Investment in power generation, transmission and distribution is necessary to meet this demand. In

Day-Ahead Economic Dispatch of Coupled Desalinated Water and Power Grids with Participation of Compressed Air Energy Storages

Nowadays, water and electricity are closely interdependent essential sources in human life that affect socio-economic growth and prosperity. In other words, electricity is a fundamental source to
