The research project open_MODEX, in which the RLI assumes the role of consortium leader, starts with a kick-off workshop on March 6th at the RLI in Berlin-Adlershof. For the first time, all project partners will meet in person to discuss the first steps in the open-source research project and to define work packages.
open_MODEX is an open-source project in which five open frameworks for energy system analysis are examined and compared. With the help of such frameworks it is possible to virtually model energy systems of the future and to investigate the effects of an increased share of renewable energy. The aim of open_MODEX is to highlight strengths and weaknesses of the individual frameworks and to analyze commonalities, differences, and possible synergies between the frameworks. This will simplify the selection of suitable models for concrete questions in the future.
open_MODEX is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. In addition to RLI, project partners include RWTH Aachen, TU Berlin, TU Munich, Europa Universität Flensburg and the Technical University of Denmark.
