First SciGRID Workshop

Fr 15 Mai 2015 | -- (permalink)

The first SciGRID Workshop was organized at NEXT ENERGY in Oldenburg on the 20th of April 2015. The workshop addressed experts in energy system and transmission system modelling. The SciGRID project was presented to around 20 participants from different research institutions and universities. A live demo of the first version of the SciGRID model has taken place at the workshop along with different presentations regarding technical and practical aspects of the SciGRID project and model.

During the workshop, an interesting and lively discussion found place about transmission modelling in general and about using open data in transmission grid modelling in particular. This is not only an indicator of the success of the SciGRID Workshop but it reflects the increasing interest and importance of transmission grid modelling. The discussion points raised will be published soon on this webpage.

It is planned that the first version of the SciGRID model will be made available for download on the 15.06.2015.
