EnergyModelsInvestments

Build Status Stable In Development

EnergyModelsInvestments is a package to investment decisions to models designed using the EnergyModelsBase package. If the package EnergyModelsGeography is loaded, it will also provide investment options to transmission mode.

Note:

We migrated recently from an internal Git solution to GitHub, including the package EnergyModelsGeography. As EnergyModelsGeography is not yet registered, it is not possible to run all tests. Hence, we plan to wait with creating a release to be certain that the tests are running. As a result, the stable docs are not yet available. This may impact as well some links.

Usage

The usage of the package is based illustrated through the commented examples. The examples are minimum working examples highlighting how to add investment options to simple energy system models. This includes as well investments into transmission infrastructure. All examples are extending the examples in EnergyModelsBase and EnergyModelsGeography.
