Pilot project: revaluation
Renewable energy evaluation with energyRt
The project aims to develop a generic capacity expansion model which can be (relatively) easily applied to any territory (country/region) to evaluate intermittent renewable energy potential and electric power system design with a high to 100% share of renewables. The initial “kickstarting” model will not consider any existing generating capacity, evaluating the potential of renewables, based on 40-years of hourly meteorological data from NASA’s MERRA-2 project. As the result, the project will assemble, adopt, or develop:

The pilot project timeline
The pilot project is a short-term project, starting now in May 2020 and is expected to conclude at the end of Summer 2020, delivering the generic kick-start model, open models for the participating countries, and the set of unified scenarios. The project will include up to 7 countries/regions.
