During these two days of training, several representatives from EU islands participating in the project had the opportunity to work with both the “Island Modelling Assistant” module, and the “Scenarization module” of the IPT. The different activities have included the analysis of the impacts of the addition of solar generation to an existing energy scenario, or the simulation of a simplified action plan for an island to reach carbon-neutrality by 2050.

The IPT tool benefits from the modelling capacities of the Artelys Crystal suite, with a user-friendly interface that can be used to model insular energy systems, optimize their energy generation mix, and analyze the results with different indicators. The “Scenarization module” of the IPT is based on a library of “interventions” (development of electric vehicles, new power interconnection with the mainland, etc.) that the user can combine to create contrasted transition pathways. It is also possible to jointly optimize investments and generation plans over a full pathway, in order to reach a specific policy target (such as carbon neutrality) by a given year.

We are all looking forward to seeing how islands’ partners of the project will use the IPT tool to build ambitious energy action plans adapted to their specific needs. The IPT will be used in particular to replicate efficiently the different use-cases currently being implemented by the different lighthouse islands.
The objective of the INSULAE project is also to scale up innovative energy approaches in all EU islands. The IPT will then be commercialized by Artelys at the end of the project in order to be used by more islands to build energy action plans.
Demos and trainings will be organised next year at different forums: stay tuned for more information!
— As part of Le Havre Seine Métropole’s energy master plan, Artelys has worked with metropolitan services to set up a web platform for monitoring territorial energy data.
— CasADi is an open-source tool for general numerical optimization with a strong focus on optimal control and its versions 3.6.2 and higher are now compatible with Artelys Knitro 13.2.
