South African TIMES Model (SATIM)

ERC have been developing a multi-sector energy-economic modelling framework called the South African TIMES Model (SATIM) over a number of years. The framework utilises the ANSWER-TIMES platform to set up the problem and optimise a solution. SATIM can be used for energy system planning or the evaluation of climate change mitigation strategies over long time horizons. The documented methodology detailing the approach and assumptions can be downloaded here.
