II.1.4)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The general objective of this invitation to tender is the development of software which models the European energy system, properly customised to the European Commission needs. The software should accurately simulate the main aspects of the European energy system and be calibrated with data of the current EU energy system (covering all 28 Member States). The European Commission should be able to use this software to explore and analyse the effects of different policies and trends on regional, national and European level by running several scenarios both for different time horizons. The modelling effort will bear mainly on the electricity, gas and heat sectors, both for the short term and the medium to long term.
The proposed software should be extendible, through the addition of new modules or the adjustment of existing ones, in order to cover possible future needs of the European Commission. An expert or experts group, not restricted to the original provider(s) of this software, should be able to perform these extensions, which although straightforward in open source software, may require a separate interface for commercial software (to be provided by the contractor).
