|GAMAMOD +||The gas market model GAMAMOD is a bottom-up model used to determine and analyse the optimal natural gas supply structure in Europe and to examine the utilization of the natural gas infrastructure. In its basic version, the model includes the EU-28 countries as well as Switzerland, Norway, the Baltic States and the Balkan region. In addition, important suppliers for the European natural gas market are considered (e.g. Russia, Algeria, and Qatar). On the supply side, the model considers different production capacities with respect to the production level. The model enables the transport of natural gas by modelling pipelines and liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping. The capacity of single pipelines between neighbouring countries are aggregated in the model. In the case of LNG shipping, the model considers regasification and liquefaction capacities in export and import countries. The model includes an exogenously imputed natural gas demand for each respective country. Moreover, seasonal demand patterns in the respective countries are considered.
GAMAMOD enables the analysis of trading capacities between regional markets. Due to restricted transmission capacities, regional incidences of congestions might occur. The model allows for examining supply interruptions and their impact on the European natural gas system. As each country is modelled as a single aggregated node, no congestions occur within a market area. Furthermore, the model considers natural gas storage, which ensures security of supply in the European natural gas market.
Cyprus and Malta are isolated from the integrated European natural gas pipeline grid. Therefore, they are not considered in the model.|

|MultiMod +||The energy system and resource market model "MultiMod" is a large-scale representation of the supply and demand of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources. It captures endogenous substitution between fuels, infrastructure constraints and endogenous investment (e.g., pipeline capacity, power generation technologies), as well as market power by producers of fossil fuels in a unified framework.
The mathematical framework of the MultiMod model is a dynamic Generalized Nash Equilibrium (GNE) derived from individual players' profit maximisation problems. The formulation is generic and flexible, so that the supply chain of any number of fossil and renewable fuels can be modelled. The framework includes seasonality and allows for a detailed infrastructure representation and a comprehensive transformation sector. Investment in infrastructure (transportation, seasonal storage, transformation) is determined endogenously in the model according to the respective player’s inter-temporal optimisation problem. Furthermore, substitution between different energy carriers on the final demand side is endogenous. Modelling co-production of fuels (e.g. crude oil and associated gas) is possible, as well as a flexible setup of transformation units (multiple inputs, multiple outputs). By formulating the model as an equilibrium problem derived from non-cooperative game theory, the model can incorporate Cournot market power by individual suppliers as well as distinct discount rates by various players concerning their investment.
The current framework is an open-loop perfect foresight model. A stochastic version of the model is under development at NTNU Trondheim. This will allow for consideration of uncertainty and distinct risk profiles for individual players along the supply chain, including investment by consumers in energy efficiency.
For the model description paper, a database representing the global energy system was compiled and used for scenario analysis (Huppmann & Egging, 2014). New datasets or variations on the initial data base are currently under development within specific research projects:
- Focus on US domestic conventional crude and shale oil infrastructure (lead: Johns Hopkins University)
- Focus on Chinese coal policies (lead: Tsinghua University)
- Focus on the global crude oil market and refinery investment (lead: DIW Berlin/TU Berlin)
The model is formulated and solved as a Mixed Complementarity Problem (MCP) and implemented in GAMS, using MS Access and MS Excel for data processing and output reports. The code package includes a number of auxiliary routines and algorithms that greatly facilitate the compilation of the data set as well as calibration of the model.|

|Region4FLEX +||The open source model region4FLEX quantifies, to which extent regional load shifting potentials can fulfill the local flexibility demand of the German high voltage grid (110, 220, 380 kV), e.g. for mitigating curtailment of renewable energies. The model offers an underlying database, which contains load shifting potentials on the administrative district level for Germany. The load shifting potentials are calculated by taking into account the structural parameters of the respective regions, such as employment rates in different industry sectors or the composition of the residential building stock. The local flexibility demand data of the power grid are calculated using the open_eGO energy system model. In region4FLEX, a cost optimisation defines, which of the available load shifting potentials in a region can be used, to meet the local flexibility demand. The resulting operating data, e.g. numbers of load shifting events, are used for a subsequent economic-assessment of the flexibility options from the operator’s perspective.
Model is under development. After release it will be directly downloadable.
