MEO Model experiments in operative energy system analysis


The energy system analysis examines questions regarding the design of our energy system. However, due to the complexity and scope of the investigated systems, simplifications have to be made in the modelling, e.g. with regard to the temporal and spatial resolution of energy generation and consumption or the network infrastructures. Thus, the operative effects of the found answers in the real system remain partially open in the classical energy system analysis.


In the model comparison, different scenarios are to be calculated:

  • Which model is particularly suitable for which questions?
  • Where are the optimization potentials of the models?
  • What are the differences in the methodology of the individual models?
