The open energy modelling framework

Project description

Oemof stands for “Open Energy System Modeling Framework” and provides a free, open source and clearly documented model to analyse energy supply systems. It is developed in Python and designed as a framework with a modular structure containing several packages which communicate through well defined interfaces.

With oemof we provide base packages for energy system modeling and optimization.


Full documentation can be found at

Further packages within oemof

Feedinlib and oemof.db are part of the oemof framework. They can be used to create energy system models but are not a must.


The linkage of specific modules of the various packages is called an application (app) and depicts for example a concrete energy system model.

There is one executable example energy system in Storage optimization.

Further example apps in development can be found in Development examples.
