We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The present report summarises the creation of “current contexts” to simulate with METIS the European power system as closely as possible to today’s (“current”) configuration. The simulated operation is compared to the actual operation based on factsheets and data published by ENTSO-E. The version of METIS used in this exercise was v1.4 (developed by the contractor Artelys).
