Gusto, TU Wien

The GUSTO model is an open-source model (OSM) optimizing the energy technology investment (portfolio decision optimization) and the technology dispatch on a local level. It is an extension of the existing OSM urbs. The expansion of the model’s framework includes additional features and functionalities. Hence, the model is tailor-made for analyzing local energy systems such as […]

openTEPES, Comillas

The Open Generation and Transmission Operation and Expansion Planning Model with RES and ESS (openTEPES) determines the investment plans of new facilities (generators, ESS and lines) to supply the forecasted demand at minimum cost. Tactical planning is concerned with time horizons of 10-20 years. Its objective is to evaluate the future generation, storage and network […]

Integrate, SINTEF

Integrate is an optimization model for planning of local energy systems where different energy carriers and technologies are considered simultaneously. The model gives the user a graphical overview of a given energy system (e.g. municipality, city, suburb) with respect to costs, environmental consequences and use of local energy resources. The current version can optimize the […]
