Imperial conducts energy modeling course to support sustainable development goals | Imperial News | Imperial College London

Imperial researchers will help develop the ICTP Summer School Energy Modeling Course, led by CGG with other partners.

The Energy Systems Modeling Team at the Institute of Sustainable Gas has organized a Climate Modeling Course on June 14 to 2 as part of the CTP’s Summer Compatibility Summit for Sustainable Development with ICTP Joint Summer School on Modeling Equipment. Held. July 2021

The UK Government’s ሚሊዮን 38 million funded study initiative to help developing countries achieve low carbon emissions, open up new markets and support sustainable development goals (SDSs). Imperial College London is one of the research partners with other British universities.

The summer school is part of a larger capacity building program for regional training programs around the world. It is run by the CCG and is hosted by the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Tripoli, Italy, in collaboration with other international organizations. More than 112 participants from more than 30 countries, including participants’ academies and government departments.

Ms. José Pori, a research assistant at the Center for Environmental Policy, explains why the training is important: Energy Analysis is an important tool for conducting energy system planning analyzes to inform policy decisions, for example, to develop road maps to enlighten families, increase accessibility and energy capacity.

The institute is one of five summer courses offered by the Loboro University School of Energy Modeling and Energy System Flexibility and open training courses are conducted online by MS team and Gathertown.

The purpose of the course was to provide tools to better understand what investments are needed to meet energy security, economic growth and environmental goals and to meet the needs of the energy sector. The first part of the course focused on investment planning in energy systems using the open source model, OSeMOSYS.

The team is working with IRENA to develop the FlexTool model training materials for IRN, an open source tool for conducting flexibility assessments of the power system. Provides valuable insights into how renewable energy can play a role in energy systems without compromising reliability and energy security.

The tools used in all training courses are all open source and open university and developed by CCG in collaboration with the United Nations and international organizations. Although traditional training and coaching sessions were scheduled during the first week, students used tools to create a national case study, policy notes, posters, and elevator fields for senior policy makers.

“The event provided a great platform for participants to share knowledge and network from different countries. In fact, we hope that the students have gained experience in data preparation, model building, data entry and design and will use this experience and knowledge to better inform policy making in their country. There were a lot of interesting conversations with participants from different backgrounds, and it was great to learn their perspective on energy transfer and sustainable development, ”he said.

By the end of this year, several international regional training events are planned. The next event is EMP-A (Energy Modeling Forum for Africa), which will take place at the end of 2021. Applications for this event will open soon, and admission is free. To learn more about training sessions, subscribe to the CCG Program Newsletter or follow their LinkedIn page.
