This is the wiki page for the upcoming Fourth Workshop of the Open Energy Modelling Initiative, a grass-root organization of modellers from various European research institutes and universities. After two workshops in Berlin and one in London, the next one will be in Stockholm, Sweden hosted by KTH.The workshop takes place on 28-29 April, 2016. As always, there is no registration fee, so feel free to join!
This wiki page will be updated frequently; with a program and practical information. All participants are invited to contribute suggestions of different sessions to be included in the program. And in the meantime, feel free to register on the mailing list where all things regarding energy modelling are discussed.
Energy models are widely used for policy advice and research. They serve to answer questions on energy policy, decarbonization, and transitions towards renewable energy sources. Yet, most energy models are black boxes – even to fellow researchers. This is what we want to change. We are a group of modellers from various universities and research institutes who want to promote open energy modelling. We believe that Open Source models and Open Data will advance knowledge and lead to better energy policies. Our mission is to enable Open Source energy modelling by providing a platform for collaboration as well as tools along the full value chain of energy economics and energy system models. That is why we founded the Open Energy Modelling Initiative (openmod initiative) just a year ago. You are welcome to join us for our next workshop!
Venue: KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm
Dates: 28-29 April, 2016
Begin: Thursday (28 April) 10.00
End: Friday (29 April) 16:00
Day 1 (Thursday, 28/04) will be in room M311, Brinellvägen 68 and Day 2 (Friday, 29/04) will be in ‘Salongen’, KTH Library
Join our mailing list to receive updates.
Fee: no registration fee, but you will need to cover your own food and lodging expenses.
Accommodation option: Elite Hotel Arcadia is the closest hotel to the venue.
The workshop is hosted by the Unit of Energy Systems Analysis, KTH.
We've now reached the upper size limit of the rooms booked for the workshop (50 people), so registration is closed! If addition space becomes available, we will re-open the registration.
All the information that you entered in the form is visible on the participant list, apart from your email address which is kept private.
If you run into any problems with the registration, drop an email to Tom Brown (brown at fias.uni-frankfurt.de).
If you would like to give a 4-minute talk, please edit the list of talks below (you have to create an account on the wiki and log in first - see the buttons at the top right of this page).
Everyone who has registered is visible on the participant list.

A break-out-group is a workshop-like gathering of interested individuals for a timespan of 1-2 hours to actively discuss a common topic. All groups feature 1-2 organisers whose responsibility is to moderate the discussion and capture any results in written form.
(also: continued discussion of previous topics in their respective result docs)
The history of organising/finding topics has been moved to the Break-out group Google Doc.
