InSmart’s fourth project meeting took place in Evora, Portugal on the 7th and 8th July 2015 where the output of work packages one, two and three was finalized.
Project partners discussed the way of linking the building energy modelling results and the transport modelling results with the city Energy System Model.
The GIS database developed was discussed and further enhancements were decided in order to include the outputs of the next work packages.
Data collection on work package 4, which consists of the analysis of the cities’ energy systems and networks, is almost finalized by the cities and the reports will be available on the project website.
A concrete proposal for the setup of the TIMES planning model, the integrated Energy System Model planning tool for the development of Strategic Sustainable Energy Plans, for each city was presented and discussed in detail with the partners. The model will be developed and populated with the data gathered over the next months.
The next project meeting will be in January 2016 in Torino.
