ok i'm that the two things one of them on institute and berlin based on our last hole. i'm going to carry a researcher are doing open science and. i want to show you some of my work i'm not going to deep into energy system research because like we might my main topic i'm researching at i want to talk about what methods to reuse what's what this out what does our research looked like we have a quite interesting field energy system research perhaps you don't know why.
going to get the short introduction into it.
first introduce you find our founding father who is on its a nonprofit organization are at the institute and and foundation we are now heading our tenth anniversary who are quite small institute was only couple of researchers. a lot of students were working and three research he'll its transformation of energy system where i'm working and. also offered system so electrification planning in the global cells and islands are real islands and electrical islands and of course mobility was renewable energy so every sing with hydrogen electric cars. so what is the transformation of energy system it's we started as in looking only at it as an engineer said it but if you look at climate change and these problems these problems are not so technical anymore these problems are more human based so we introduced more tense this very research unit looking at. its formation as only transformation transfer mating the society was an energy system and not only changing and if you carry us. this is our basic aim.
i'm not sure if i have to show use a slide because i think your know what open science is this is what auburn scientists for us perhaps i talk a little bit more about the various if we face an energy system research so we looking at energy system so we know don't looking at one parkland not looking at one windmill. looking at a larger area city's disabilities or in countries all the european union and look at the combination of different energy and energy production and energy demand. energies energy and the energy field is by by history quite close to the law it's a it's a field where a lot of money from eight and a lot of people have a lot of power and the same you can say about energy system research so we come we are doing research in a field where it's not where open. science is not the norm yet so we are facing big trouble getting access to data are getting access to models and all old what's what in a close to research and a close energy system. one is that so so we're trying to in one place changing the and others system but also changing the search energy signed system that my personal am. especially as a result the last point person institutional reserve asians and performance space and systems as what we face quite a lot. researchers telling us when we you can to open science and edges themselves and say yes we do it. today i want to talk a little bit about this motivation was open science important we are small research institute is so we need to talk to other people.
open science this is what we basically are our aims at when we look at open science or i know they're quite a lot of more topics these are the ones that we concentrate on especially open source software especially open dater and of course open access paper so we published our our results and as often. access to education of course i teach at the university as well so i try to get my my ideas of open science to the other people but the world.
so what is energy system modeling is in a nutshell so we have some input data as is like time serious parkland lists of macro economic assumptions c o two emissions everything it you can imagine so a huge bunch of of data sets like from different areas from different types you process. and put them into and out he says the maltese are mostly the optimization models it calculates the best system as and as an engineer career way also are considering c o two emissions concerning prices price developments we get to sell put dater review process it and three. we try to publish it an interpreter interpreted and publish it so we have the three main. fields of open science effect. the biggest problems in protecting there is no open in potato we have to generate that we have to be creative was that if we have open source models and we have our creative input data we can create open output data and then publish it but the input data is our biggest struggle.
and of course of what's also rising black box modeling sources was at this in norman an ad says the modeling it's on the top of you have my had an input data or i have my specialized model in my institute i produce some daytime show you we have to do it like this you do to make policy advice based on a black box. when i entered a few that said this is not the way i want to do research so we tried as we started to be more transparent so we document what we're using the are using meta data looked in other research fields where william way more advanced and in documenting in in sharing concepts. so we started to collect information of what its use what can be used and what are the licenses and now we're getting to the bottom we are using an input data was open license as we are using open source models and of course we license all our puts. but of course of this is the status quo stay still on top so we are this is where we're going and and. ninety two riots a realty to do what what i really like to be an exit the whole chain of openness.
from those what we basically use as licenses them credit for you to know. but as most commonly used sings in our institute on our ends of the open world of energy part. just to let you know we're talking a lot was a with some some lawyers are experts from other fields to to get the knowledge into our area and this is what came out copy left for daytime not a big fan but we're using a lot of open street map data so we have open we have share like an acre are. and our metrics.
ok what other scientific use cars are of collaborating because if you're doing open now we have a small into the research institute now we have we can connect it's a lot of small different institute's and we can work together and research project or of of the project work so we have a law. of documentation documents like pilot project occasions reports papers articles right do we started using these collaborative tools was minutes like this she pets and shared documents and of course for use of open source software using the top and get what's now. are rising is the creation of collaborative data collected since this is really important because you have a lot of assumptions in the energy system and these assumptions are not documented really well so we try to gather a lot of information. as literature read the research and parents are collections and have opened their input data for the first time in this area for this is a new one the other ones are i think you're quite familiar with that. i had a look at what is collaborative work of i had some worked up about it can determine the time how much have left the is a perfect so we're looking at how do we differentiate cooperation between to teamwork and collaboration the term collaboration and. the german language is associated with as negative collaborators we try to reframe it were not working with the enemy we've come collaborators and we're becoming friends. we have with the added quite interesting discussion if we if you use a new one of if you take a new word over reframe the old one and we decided for a friend's your one cause collaboration in is the sum of ten years interactive and purposeful collaboration so we were working together. on one document life basically on the internet so that i think i really like this definition. so yeah i think you all know these tools for collaborating. firms and special every especial conned different concepts for different purposes. we came up was a list of criteria when to use and what to use as tools and and now institute annoy open energy system community and so we came up a list was with criteria we want to look at so if it's the server we use as collaborative tools as it says. also it or is it somewhere else so we decided against using google because of service are in the united states and our institute policy doesn't allows at least as is one example of course we use opens only open source software do we use something that has a proper terry license as well but we can pay for it use it. do we need real time or near time collaboration so get this new time and pets are real time so you see life on if you type it and. different form it's different popularity distribution and of course are on what is the usability us think it's quite important this is a list we came up so for air and code i would put you can tell no part on those i forgot so google us basically out of the game for for us of the cars are some reasons. them for text we use a lot of nice a patent for pet latics overleaf us now the place to go all collaborative documents are and oval even our area. all code is basically on guitar or get lap. private a private repositories as for and it's not really used. that match but get up as a place to go get help handle this is quite is now like like my c.v. basically in our area. so for data we have quite a good experience with snacks cloud and only office extension so we can have a crew she style but on our own solar of your own have all right we can assign open license us. and once a specialty i want to talk to about a little bit of something i'm working on for the last three years as the open energy platform data platform for are collaborative energy system research.
it's also the market work or apartments from our home from the energy system area from some big are some small institutes and we are of course is an open source project everybody can participate we have and have a platform which is under the current the development. for the last three years.
what we're doing is to have this process off getting collecting input data are making running models and distributing output data are so we set up a possible still database on and on top. have a meta data applied to it we have a dialect an a.p.i. to connect all models to it affects you to describe our models and souls as a subtle some really simplified circle of modeling what we're doing or research. is it is based on the state of base where everybody has access to of course we can only we are only allowed to distribute open data was open license us.
what we did we developed yet we have the database we have meta data based on. on fiction as data are data packages. and jason springs. so basically we try to fall as effect criteria us we have the effect she was implemented to describe models and scenarios we have an a.p.i. and we can work with us what our current developments are on ontology i was really happy that peter morass talked about that this is our main my main the top. but i'm i'm working on right now is to create an ontology for energy system which doesn't exist. when and there was no there was no no initiative before so you trying to collect has different ideas getting a semantic weapon to or data else will. another big topic is a open peer review process for open data because we don't have any quiet quality criteria and this field them how do you measure quality criteria some chance of your input data assumptions how do we evaluate that says one of my media research topics i'm i'm currently working at them. my main conclusion so i'm open science and energy system research is evolving is developing slowly but steady. we need all suitable open nice assesses was what was one of the main room issues we face and that every area and we have a lot of collaborating tools use in this area. we have some of the young researchers are really keen fizzes new technology and technologies but what we need is a better templates fall for these tools we need processes for this collaboration how do we archives these documents how do we process as document something i think we need to meet some work. once and a hostile operation on on open data sets its serve as a really important topic in my area and it's under development and i think this is the right way to go.
and yes open science is becoming the new default whether you like it or not i shall the slide and and some different conferences was people not unfamiliar was open science. and that was really happy to presence as is his ideas to people were more into the topic thank you very much.
