Towards More Findable Energy Research Software by Introducing a Metadata-based Registry

Ferenz, Stephan
Abstracts of the 11th DACH+ Conference on Energy Informatics
Research software in the energy domain becomes increasingly important to analyze, simulate and optimize energy systems and, therefore, supports the required transition of energy systems as important part to tackle the climate crisis. To make energy research software more findable, it should be described with metadata following the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) criteria and be registered in a common registry. Within the doctoral research project, a metadata schema to describe energy research software and an according registry will be developed. With these artifacts, the software gets easier to find and, thus, its reuse is supported.
