Open Source Reference Model of the European Gas Transport Network for Scientific Analysis
The Institute for Networked Energy Systems aims with the SciGRID_Gas project at developing an open model of the European gas transport network for the ENTSO-G network. The model will provide a reference gas transport network for scientific investigations and will be based on public and non-public data sets. SciGRID_Gas will be compatible with the existing open source model of the European electricity transmission network SciGRID, which was developed at the predecessor institute NEXT ENERGY from 2014 to 2017. These two models will provide industry and science with a freely available, cross-sector data model for evaluating the future design of the German electricity and gas networks in a European energy system dominated with incresing shares of renewable energy generation.
