Project Title Decision support systems for local energy policy in India - Surat
Project Code 2017RT01
Project Status Ongoing
Start Date April 2017
Sponsor(s) The University of Edinburgh
Division Energy Environment Technology Development

The main goal of this project is to deliver a Proof of Concept of a decision support system to help the city council of Surat, India, to decide how to manage, extend or adapt its energy options. This will involve an initial assessment of the local needs, followed by an iterative process of gathering data, using existing energy demand, system and expansion models to process this data, building a Proof of Concept example of an end-user decision support system that can be used to visualise and optimise future decisions and outline the practical development path to a fully functional implementation.
