REEEMgame, an open source game to make energy systems understandable

REEEMgame is a learning simulation of how the future will look depending on how the player decides to act. The goal is to maximize the score in 2050, considering the social, environmental and economic dimensions decade by decade. The game aims to let the player interactively discover how (policy) decisions might affect the development of the European electricity sector in the transition to a low carbon system. At three points in time (2020, 2030, 2040) decisions need to be made...

Open Energy Modelling Workshop – Zurich 2018

At last weeks meeting of the open energy modelling community (openmod) in Zurich, Berit Müller from the REEEM consortium gave a lightening talk about the development of the REEEMgame and the Pathways Dialogue tool  developed in the project. We got good feedback and interesting comments. Many other interesting open-source tools have been presented there, like e.g. pyam – an open-source Python package for IAM scenario analysis and visualization. For more information about the Workshop have a look at the openmod...
