The toolset consists of the modules balancing, benchmark and scenario development. The main tasks of IdE/ University of Kassel cover the latter, including determination of potentials for renewable energies, creation of scenarios and a matrix of actions and regional value creation figures of an improved renewable energy supply in electricity, heat and efficiency.
