Open Source Energy System Modeling @ TU Wien

../../_static/tuwien_logo.png

Lecture by Daniel Huppmann held in the summer semester since 2019. Link to the lecture page on TISS.

Scope

This lecture introduces key concepts of open-source modelling to better understand the energy system and assessing the transition to renewable sources in the context of climate change mitigation and sustainable development.

We discuss the role of quantitative, model-based pathways in international and national climate mitigation policy, in particular the reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the students will learn how to develop scenarios of the energy transition using open-source tools and readily available data.
