METIS - Modelling the European Energy System

METIS - Modelling the European Energy System

METIS is a mathematical model providing analysis of the European energy system for electricity, gas and heat. It simulates the operation of energy systems and markets on an hourly basis over a year, while also factoring in uncertainties like weather variations. For example, it can analyse the hour-by-hour impact of using more renewable energy.

The model can be used at national or regional level.

METIS is used by the European Commission to further support its evidence-based policy making, for electricity and gas. It has for example been used to prepare the Commission’s proposals for a new energy market design, as well as renewable energy and energy security issues.
