METIS, cost-efficient district heating development

Share this Post:

METIS is a mathematical model providing analysis of the European energy system. It simulates the operation of energy systems and markets on an hourly basis over a year, while factoring in uncertainties like weather variations. In order to determine the potential contribution of district heating networks to the reduction of energy demand and emissions, the district heat dimension is added to the METIS model.


This study explains the extension of the METIS tool, outlines the underlying information used for model development and scenario generation and demonstrates the functionalities of the new METIS heat module.
