Second Project Meeting

On the 1st of August the second METIS project meeting took place at the IEK-3 in Jülich.

During the second project meeting, the first preliminary results were exchanged and the next milestones defined. Furthermore, collaboration standards were established to ensure that the different work packages could be efficiently merged towards the end of the project. Additional, a work plan was defined to validate the developed methods on the high performance computers of the JSC within the timeframe of the project.

Last but not least, three publications were presented which were supported within the framework of the project. They deal with questions of complexity in energy system models [1], the complexity reduction [2], but also with the application-specific and mathematically demanding modelling of gas networks [3].
