Imperial College researchers are developing a summer school energy systems modeling course for Related Climate Growth (CCG).
The Energy Systems Modeling Team at the Institute for Sustainable Gas has organized a Power Summer Course Model for Sustainable Development (CCG) for the Sustainable Development (CCG) Program from June 14 to July 2, 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.
CCG Summer School is part of a comprehensive capacity building program for regional training programs around the world. It was held in partnership with the Abdussalam International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Tripoli, Italy. 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 a useful tool for informing power system planning analyzes to inform policy decisions, for example, to help families develop roadmaps for access to electricity, increase accessibility and energy capacity.
The institute was one of five courses offered by the summer team and open training courses by MS Team and Gathertown on the Lawborough University Energy Modeling and Energy Flexibility Course.
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 OseMOSYS model.
The team collaborated with Erenne to develop FlexTool model training materials, an open source tool for assessing the flexibility of the power system and providing useful insights on how to increase the role of renewable energy. Without compromising the reliability and safety of the power system.
The tools used in all training courses are all open source and open university and developed by 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.
