This paper provides an overview of ETI’s Energy System Modelling Environment (ESME).
The first objective of this paper is to describe, in general terms, what the tool does and what it is used for.This is intended to act as background reference material for anyone who has seen ESME cited in a presentation or report and wishes to find out more about the modelling work behind the headline results.
The second objective of this paper is to give a more detailed guide to the modelling approach, describing how key features of the problem are represented in the model and noting some of the key assumptions and limitations of the approach.
This material is more technical, and will be particularly useful for people with knowledge of other energy models.
