20 January 2021 | During a workshop today, the team of the research project SzenarienDB presented an extension of the Open Energy Platform (OEP) to the public. The extension contains a collection of open scenario data – all data related to one scenario calculation for the Energy Transition accumulated.
Goal of SzenarienDB project achieved
After three years of intensive work, the SzenarienDB project has thus come to a successful end. The core of the project was the creation of a publicly accessible database in which scenario data is summarized and published. For this purpose, the OEP which originates from the open_eGo project, was expanded to include scenario data sets. In addition, the data are linked to model descriptions. This leads to greater transparency, improved exchange of scenario data, and thus more efficient use of public funding.
A team of researchers for open energy data
In today’s closing event, the results of the project were presented online and discussed together with the participants. At the same time, the extension was inaugurated; it is now available to everyone interested free of charge on the OEP.
In SzenarienDB, the RLI collaborated with the project partners Fraunhofer IEE (formerly IWES), Öko-Institut and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. IEE was in charge of the project. Ludwig Hülk and Christian Hofmann managed the project at RLI.
