is a collection of python/Julia/R libraries for decentralized energy system stochastic modelling that are open source licenced.


It compromises novel mathematical computer tools for weakly coupled under-the-grid-mini-grids and off-grid-mini-grids:

  1. Rural Electricity Demand Forecasting
  2. Technical Design
  3. Operation and Maintenance
  4. Financial Modelling-Tariff/Subsidy Tool


Using Chance Constraints, Multi-Stage Stochastic Programming Recourse and hybrid classical time series analysis with machine learning algorithms.

Master thesis for this project:

Coming soon


We are involved in research for rural and urban decentralized electrification in the Global South. We strive to understand the economic, commercial, political and social implications behind mini-grids design and development.
