Berlin | 5 years openmod workshop anniversary – A reason to celebrate! The reason why it takes place in Berlin is not chosen by chance since Berlin was the place where the initial workshop was held in 2014. The upcoming workshop will however be bigger with a maximum number of 200 participants. Many things have changed since 2014, the interest in open source and open data is growing and the openmod initiative has become a known community to foster these principles.
The openmod workshops provide a forum for modellers to come together and discuss how to further the use of open data and open software tools in the energy modelling community. Topics range from exchanges about specific types of data (e.g. sources for open data on building stocks or distribution networks) to advocacy and outreach.
The full agenda as well as more information on the conference is available on the website of the openmod initiative.
