The idea to set up an open platform for data required by energy system models was born in 2014, around the same time when a number of energy system researchers interested in advancing open source and open data in their field gathered for the first time in Berlin and formed what is now the Open Energy Modelling Initiative (short: openmod initiative). Frauke Wiese, then at Europa-Universität Flensburg and Lion Hirth, as founder of Neon Neue Energieökonomik took the lead and formed a team around four institutions to apply for funding by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to develop and create an open platform for power system modelling: OPSD.
