Energy models are crucial for helping governments and policymakers plan long-term investments in the energy transition context. One of the most established open-source optimisation models is OSeMOSYS—the Open-Source Energy Modelling System. This paper presents a new interface—clicSAND—for OSeMOSYS, which shortens the learning curve and supports beginner energy modellers to perform long-term investment analyses efficiently. The freely available and open-source clicSAND software consists of a…

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.
