|Energy consultancy Baringa Partners were appointed to design and develop a software modelling tool to be used in the planning of cost-effective local energy systems. This software is called EnergyPath and will evolve to include a number of additional packages to inform planning, consumer insights and business metrics. Element Energy, Hitachi and University College London have worked with Baringa to develop the software with input from a range of local authorities, Western Power Distribution and Ramboll. EnergyPath will complement ETI’s national strategic energy system tool ESME which links heat, power, transport and the infrastructure that connects them. EnergyPath is a registered trade mark of the Energy Technologies Institute LLP.
This deliverable package comprises:
This report is intended to provide an accessible summary of how EPN can be used to model local energy systems. It includes context on the development of EPN (including high-level interactions with other relevant tools such as ESME) and description of the scope of EPN modelling framework including Buildings, Technologies, Transmission/Distribution, Time, Cost, Carbon and Pathways.
