Scenario analyses and Balmorel training in Türkiye

Balmorel: Power system model | September 2021 - December 2022

Since 2017, Türkiye and Denmark have cooperated through the Strategic Sector Cooperation programme on developing relevant policies, strategies and solutions to enable a low carbon transition of the Turkish energy sector.

A focus of the programme was to support the DEA in creating a roadmap to offshore wind in Türkiye. Ea Energy Analyses built a Turkish energy system model in Balmorel to model and analyse the potential role that offshore wind could have in Türkiye in a number of scenarios. Results from the Balmorel model gave insights into the dynamics of the Turkish power sector and shed light on the potential for offshore wind in Türkiye.

As another part of the project, Ea carried out introductory Balmorel training courses for Turkish experts, in order to familiarise them with the Balmorel energy system model, with a focus on understanding data input format and relevant results and outputs.

The project ran from September 2021 to December 2022.
