Open ENergy TRansition ANalyses for a low-carbon Economy


Definition of and requirements for case studies of the European enery transition

Report with the definition and requirement of the 8 case studies (M12-EDF) : this report, under tasks 6.1 to 6.8 will be composed of 2 parts : 1/ definition of the case studies with all considered scenarios including economical and technological assumptions 2/ specification of requirements for modelling tools, linkages and necessary data in order to execute the case studies.

Data Management Plan

The data management plan will outline the handling of research data during the project, with a focus on making data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable (FAIR). (Task 4.4)

Consistent scenarions for low carbon energy futures at pan-European level

D3.1 delivers consistent quantitative scenarios for low carbon energy futures at pan-European level. The involvement of stakeholder groups in this context is of vital importance, because these scenarios also set the boundaries for the scenario building exercises on several lower levels in Europe (country, regional, local level). Measure of success: Delivery of at least 3 (max. 5) quantitative pan-European scenarios D3.1 is allocated to Task 3.1

European storylines for low carbon futures of the European energy system

The storyline description in D7.1 provides consistent narratives guidelines for scenario studies and use case analyses in the Open ENTRANCE project. This includes technology choice and innovation, socio-economic, other social sciences and humanities aspects as well as corresponding driving forces for them. Measure of success: If convergence among several partners can be achieved in terms of narratives/ guidelines and D7.1 can delivered in time (important, because it feeds into Task 3.1) D7.1 is allocated to Task 7.2

Data exchange format and template

The data exchange format will be defined following established conventions in the scientific research community. (Task 4.2)

Communication and Dissemination Strategy I-II

The Communication and Dissemination Strategy I-II will identify the most appropriate channels for the OpenENTRANCE project, its results and objectives in report form (M6). The strategy will be updated after the first half of the project (M24). The report on use of dedicated social media channels will summarise the project’s virtual outreach (M24). (T2.1)

Definition and implementation of the interface between the models in the suite and the Common Database

This deliverable aims to functionally describe the exchange of information between each model and the Common Database. In addition, within this deliverable, the results of the upload/download trial tests conducted to check the proper functioning of the link between each model and the Database will be reported, including any possible limitations to the amount or type of data to be exchanged. This deliverable relates to Task 5.2.

Platform operational for scenario and case study data exchange

The open modelling platform will be usable for scenario data exchange by consortium partners. This includes upload/download functionality, user rights management, data version control and visualization features. (Task 4.1) The integration with the postprocessing tool GAINS will be implemented and operational (Task 4.3)

Project Management Plan - intial version

The deliverable will be a Project Management Plan with a Gantt chart and a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). It will be delivered in a first version in M2 and updated in M30. It will include a schedule per task, responsible partner related subtasks, related deliverables, and dependencies on other tasks. The deliverable will be developed in Task 8.1.

"Definition and implementation of the upgrades to a selected subset of models in the suite to make them ""open-source"""

Within this deliverable, first, appropriate coding guidelines to be applied to make models open will be provided. Then, each model in the suite will be classified according to its degree of openness. Lastly, those changes implemented in each open model will be described. This deliverable relates to Task 5.2.

Visual identity

The project’s visual identity (website, logo, leaflet, brochure, publication and presentation templates) will be ready (M6) and help dissemination activities. The website will be continuously updated during the project’s duration. (T2.2)
