Energy system models allow us to test and select better policy strategies. The WHY Project organises events with stakeholders to ensure the active and continuous engagement of a broad spectrum of relevant stakeholders in the development and testing phase of the WHY Toolkit prototype as well as, solicit their feedback and then make the required modeling improvements accordingly. In the same time, we aim to oresent the project at open days and general events to close the gap between the research modeling community and the civil society.

Stakeholder Input: Improving Demand-Side Modelling to Inform Ambitious Climate Policies in the European Union
We invited several stakeholders dealing with the European Union’s climate and energy policies to investigate what issues, in their opinion, should be considered when modelling the energy demand and what policy measures are the most important to drive the transition in the EU buildings sector.
The WHY Project Exhibition Booth was arranged by the Climate Alliance team over the course of 3 days at the digital exhibition area of the Conference. The Team seekes discussion with policy-makers and experts representing municipalities interested in learning more about the potiential exploitation of the project. Particulary discussions on energy communities as business models involving municipalities were explored.
In this workshop we presented an introduction to evolutionary algorithms focusing on best practices available and provided some tips to correctly engineer an evolutionary algorithm. Moreover, we presented two use cases from the Energy System Modelling community. All presentations are available on our Youtube channel.
