Ecostan is an agent based model of a country in the not too distant future using mostly sustainable energy. This way what-if scenario’s for the energy transition can be quickly explored and compared.

Ecostan models an electricity grid with energy from wind and solar and how it works together with a neighborhood adopting electric vehicles, heat pumps, solar panels, solar boilers, inductive cooking and insulation.

Ecostan is an initiative of the TU/e, Elaad and Alliander. It is modeled in GAMA, an agent based modelling platform comparable to NetLogo but more robust and mature.

We have assignments and a job opening for students!
