The Spine project develops and validates an end to end modular set of open source
software tools for energy system modelling (the so-called Spine Toolbox). The tools enable open, practical, flexible and
realistic planning of future European energy grids. The Toolbox is suitable for both detailed modelling of complex features
in energy systems as well as for large-scale problems.
The Spine Toolbox will have partially automated data retrieval and validation of both input and output data, enabling users
to focus on core modelling tasks. The Spine Model is flexible in terms of temporal, geographical, technological and sectoral
dimensions, which will allow integrated analyses in several levels of the energy grids. These features make the Spine Toolbox
state-of-the-art in energy system modelling, and allow grid operators, energy producers and researchers to carry out analyses
that are not possible with current modelling systems.
For releases, installation instructions, tutorials, license,
Spine Toolbox 0.2 has been released.
