TradeRES Stakeholder Workshop - Registration is now open
The workshop is open to the interested public, there is no admission fee.
Preliminary Agenda – CEST (UTC+2)
Part 1: Research and Results
- 09:30h Welcome and Introduction
- 09:45h Capacity Markets and Energy Only Markets
- 10:30h TradeRES Models, Cast Studies and Scenarios
- 11:00h Break
- 11:15h Support Instruments: Theory and Model Results
- 12:30h End of Part 1
Part 2: Hands-on Tool Demonstration
- 14:00 Welcome and Introduction
- 14:15 AMIRIS + Spine Toolbox: Installation and Execution
- 14:30 Parametrise Market Designs in AMIRIS
- 15:30 Break
- 15:45 Backbone + Spine Toolbox: Installation and Execution
- 17:00 End of Part 2
To avoid waiting times for downloads and installation processes during the workshop, we ask all participants to check if their system meets these requirements. Both, AMIRIS and Backbone require Python and Spine-Toolbox for the version shown in this tutorial.
You can test if you have Python available by using the command python –version. This should show your Python version if the Python command was found. Note that if you use a Python environment manager you can have several Python versions on your system side by side. If you do not have Python installed on your system, you may use e.g. conda or mamba. We will use a Python 3.9 installation for this tutorial.
AMIRIS also requires Java JDK 11 or above. It operates on Windows, Linux and Mac. In this tutorial, we will use AMIRIS integrated within Spine-Toolbox.
You can test if you have a JDK by using the command java –version (or java -version on some systems). This should show your Java version if Java was found. If you get a command not found error, or if Java version is less than 11 please download and install a recent JDK from e.g. here.
Backbone requires a working GAMS installation and licence.

ECEMP conference - save the date!
The European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform (ECEMP) 2022 Conference – Acting on the ambitions to a net-zero EU: roadblocks, challenges, and opportunities (October 5-7 2022, online/Brussels). The objectives of the ECEMP conferences are to establish “a forum for exchanging research, development and practice of energy system modelling in Europe and, where feasible, promote the sharing of data and resources”.
The European Climate and Energy Modelling Forum (ECEMF) is a European project which comprises 15 partners and 20 models. The project aims to face the challenges of reducing fragmentation in research and energy modelling and then provide robust policy insights. The ambition is ECEMP should become a permanent forum creating a community of members and modelling teams willing to share their data.
The submission system will be soon available!
