The REFLEX Energy Models System (EMS)
For analysing the European energy system under the aspects of flexibility and technological progress different single issue-specific models and tools of the REFLEX partners will be used. This model pool contains bottom-up simulation tools and fundamental system optimisation models for the different sectors on national and therewith also on European level as well as approaches for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
These very detailed sub-models will be combined to an integrated energy model system. To ensure a consistent system analysis, all models are based on a common database and scenario framework within the EMS. More detailed information to the combined models are given on the specific model sides.
