The project members of ENSYSTRA have experienced a successful visit to the ENSYSTRA Summer School in Flensburg, Germany, that took place from 3 to 7 September. The Summer School on System Modelling was designed for the ENSYSTRA researchers at an early stage of their research projects and brought together researchers in the field of energy system modelling and analysis.
ENSYSTRA, co-developed and supported by New Energy Coalition, trains 15 PhD researchers in all aspects of energy systems transition. Due to the different backgrounds of the ENSYSTRA PhDs the aim of the summer school was to create interdisciplinary understanding and collaboration. Besides different lectures ranging from “Fundamentals of Energy System Modelling” to advanced modelling techniques, the programme focused on the practical work of the PhDs and exchange with different experts.
During the Summer School the lectures were supplemented by open spaces for group work and discussions on relevant topics in the field of energy system modelling. The week was framed by different social events to create room for networking with project partners and external participants.
