IEA-ETSAP Energy Systems Analysis Webinars

IEA-ETSAP organises online webinars on topics which are related to energy modelling in general and specific topics related to the use of ETSAP tools. The webinars are organised every one or two months with topics selected by the modelling community. The recordings of the webinars are available on ETSAP’s YouTube channel following the links below.

IEA-ETSAP Webinars

Introducing Veda 2.0. October 2020

Amit Kanudia, KanORS-EMR: Introducing Veda 2.0

How to build a TIMES model from scratch. November 2020

Kathleen Vaillancourt, ESMIA Consultants: Building multi-regional models. Experiences from the development of the model for Canada and North America
Olexandr Balyk, University College Cork: Building TIMES models with flexible temporal resolution
Evangelos Panos, PSI Zurich: Building a multi-regional model using a single excel workbook and TFM_DINS

Modelling clean energy transitions: approaches and tools for the World Energy Outlook and the Energy Technology Perspectives. December 2020

The International Energy Agency (IEA) publishes many key energy reports including two that focus on the future evolution of the global energy system: the World Energy Outlook and the Energy Technology Perspectives. In this webinar, two of the IEA’s leading modellers give an overview of their models and modelling approaches that underpin these two flagship reports.
Dr. Stéphanie Bouckaert speaks about modelling energy end-use sectors.
Dr. Uwe Remme discusses the modelling of energy transformation sectors.

This webinar was organized by the IEA ETSAP and was hosted by the UCL Energy Institute at University College London.

Version control in TIMES models. January 2021

Topic 1: Developing and using TIMES models with git, GitHub and VEDA
Olexandr Balyk, University College Cork

Topic 2: Data management and version control in collaborative multi-regional TIMES models
James Glynn, University College Cork

This webinar was organized by the IEA ETSAP and was hosted by the UCL Energy Institute at University College London.

High temporal and spatial resolution in TIMES models. February 2021

Dr. Markus Blesl, IER Univ. Stuttgart, presented details on Local Energy Systems modelling with high temporal resolution.

Dr. Tom Kober and Dr Evangelos Panos, Paul Scherrer Institut, presented Experiences on increasing the spatial and temporal resolution of TIMES models.

Modelling of Variable Renewable Energy. March 2021

Topic 1: Stochastic Modelling of VRES in TIMES
Dr. Pernille Seljom presents an approach which models the short-term uncertainty of the generation of VRES explicitly, and thus provides results that capture the need for flexibility.

Topic 2: Modelling high VRES with hourly TS resolution, unit commitment, dispatch and capacity expansion in TIMES
Dr. James Glynn presents an explicit modelling approach for the hourly variations of wind, solar and hydro, integrated with the unit commitment constraints of dispatchable fossil generation power plants balanced with short term and long-term demand variations with capacity expansion.
