At the upcoming Power Tech program, IIASA researcher Daniel Huppmann will present about the importance of an open platform for scenario analysis and visualization to assess low-carbon energy system transition pathways.

The presentation will consist of a short guide to the best practice of collaborative development of open-source scientific software, the basics of open and FAIR data, and the pyam package. The pyam package is an open source toolbox in Python that can visualize and analyze energy systems scenarios.

At Power Tech, numerous researchers and climate experts present about the latest research that can be used to meet the sustainable development goals (SDGs). The Power Tech program is organized into a series of tutorials regarding different topics, including flexibility and security in power systems facing energy transition, integrated planning of water-energy systems for achieving climate resilience and decarbonization, and the application of VSC HVDC technology to enable energy transition.

The Power Tech program will begin on June 28th. For more information, visit https://www.powertech2021.com/index.php/program-powertech/technical-program/video-poster-sessions-2.
