We develop and maintain the Energy Transition Model and help organizations navigate the complexities of the energy transition
Quintel helps organizations gain a strategic understanding of the energy transition and the energy system as a whole. The ETM helps organizations explore how robust their energy strategies and transition plans are, given possible future developments. Quintel also supports energy consulting firms in their use of the ETM.
Some recent projects include:
See our list of publications for examples of our work.
We keep improving the Energy Transition Model. Our expertise lies in reducing the complexities of an interdependent energy system to their essence. Our open source model is ideally suited for collective development. All improvements to the ETM are made in close collaborations with our partners.
A recent example of a modeling project:
Recent improvements of the ETM include:
Quintel does all its product development in-house. The calculation engine for the Energy Transition Model is entirely written in the Ruby programming language. This language is a dynamic, reflective and object-oriented language with an active open-source community. For the ETM it offers a readable way to create, maintain and expand our modules.
Quintel has also developed a range of educational material for the Dutch education system. Students from primary school to PhD level use these educational materials to interactively learn to understand the energy system better. More information can be found on Quintel's education page. (in Dutch).
