the MESSAGEix integrated assessment model
The MESSAGEix framework
MESSAGEix is a versatile, open-source, dynamic systems-optimization model. It was developed for strategic energy planning and integrated assessment of energy-engineering-economy-environment (E4) systems. The framework includes the possibility for integration with the general-economy MACRO model to incorporate the feedback from price changes on demand for commodities or energy services. The mathematical formulation is based on the MESSAGE Integrated Assessment model developed at IIASA since the 1980s.
The MESSAGEix and MACRO models are implemented in GAMS. This repository contains the GAMS code and a number of tutorials and examples using stylized national energy system models.
The MESSAGEix framework is fully integrated with IIASA's ix modeling platform (ixmp), a data warehouse for high-powered numerical scenario analysis.
