• archetypal - retrieve, construct, simulate, convert and analyse building simulation templates. Includes a tabula_api_request function to GET TABULA data.

  • ber-public - a Python toolkit for the SEAI’s BER public dataset

  • cer-smart-meter-trials-2009-2011 - A Python toolkit for the CER Smart Meter Trials 2009-2011 datasets

  • entsoe-py - Python client for the ENTSO-E API (european network of transmission system operators for electricity)

  • osmnx - Python for street networks. Retrieve, model, analyze, and visualize street networks and other spatial data from OpenStreetMap.

Modelling Frameworks

  • balmorel (article, zenodo) - “a partial equilibrium model (written in GAMS) for analysing the electricity and combined heat and power sectors in an international perspective. It is highly versatile and may be applied for long range planning as well as shorter time operational analysis. Balmorel is implemented as a mainly linear programming optimisation problem.”

  • TIMES (The Integrated MARKAL-EFOM System) (zenodo) - “a technology rich, bottom-up model generator, which uses linear-programming to produce a least-cost energy system, optimized according to a number of user constraints, over medium to long-term time horizons. In a nutshell, TIMES is used for, the exploration of possible energy futures based on contrasted scenarios.”

  • TEASER - allows fast generation of archetype buildings (via TABULA typologies) with low input requirements and the export of individual Modelica dynamic simulation models.


  • Pandas-Bokeh - Plot in Python and export to static HTML (i.e. no server required) which can be easily embedded onto websites. It’s a Bokeh Plotting Backend for the Python libraries Pandas and GeoPandas.

  • streamlit (gallery) - turns Python scripts into shareable web apps in minutes. streamlit converts your Python script into HTML, CSS and JavaScript enabling the creation of massively customisable, interactive webapps. They also hosts your webapp for free (as of 17/06/2021).

  • tableau-public - free software that can allow anyone to connect to a spreadsheet or file and create interactive data visualizations for the web using a drag and drop user interface.
