This ESR will build on the existing open source and open data based energy system modelling framework OEMOF of the German and European power sector developed at Europa-University Flensburg. It will also build on the latest developments in linking the power system models with the heat sector (ANGUS II) and the work of ESR 2 on linking the transport sector and major dispatchable loads into the modelling system. ESR 5 will concentrate on extending the GIS based modelling framework to the energy system of the entire EU-28 and to use this extended framework to analyze different possible transition pathways towards a long term climate neutral sustainable energy system for EU-28. A major focus of this work will be the analysis of the future function and role of the North Sea region as part of such a sustainable energy future and the possible transition pathways towards such sustainable future energy system. ESR 5 will work in very close cooperation with ESR 2 and in close cooperation with other ESRs addressing energy system modelling issues.

Planned secondments: Statkraft (Norway), Chalmers University (Sweden)
Lead supervisor: Prof. Dr. Olav Hohmeyer
