Meeting of March 14, 2013 - UofC
Bastiaan Straatman and Benjamin Israel
1. How does CanESS work?
2. Achievements
3. Next steps
Reference scenario(s)
Write documentation and training material
Have more users (students, pdfs, faculty)
Develop advanced scenarios
Migrate CanESS on a dedicated server
3. Canadian Energy stories
1. 2D Sankey diagrams
3. Interactive visualizations
2. 3D Sankey diagrams
2. What has been done
d. Organize the content
What Energy Systems Analysis is
Tools for Energy Systems Analysis
Canada’s Energy System
The CanESS project
Blog
4. A single database for visualization purpose
2. CanESS documentation
3. Next steps
Define website's perspective on ES
Validate the website content
Write stories for the blog
Migrate the website to UofC server
Launch the website

1. Benchmark on Energy
System Analysis initiatives
80 pages study on
energy systems
approaches and
academic initiatives
800+ input variables documented (source, units, etc)
improved computational structure diagrams
Diagrams
generated
with e!Sankey
3D diagram software
developed by a
Master student
b. Final visualizations
a. Experimental
visualizations
3 chart-types retained
Interactive panel to control scope, scale and time
Interest from students and postdoc in using CanESS for their research
Development of advanced ES components
Improved energy system analysis by providing enhanced tool set
1. Why a website on Energy Systems?
a. Canada is an ‘energy power house’
which has to deal with global environmental concerns and domestic energy strategy
b. Top universities in the world have established advanced energy systems analysis initiatives
d. Vision statements for this website
To rate UofC as a top-5 University on Energy Systems Analysis
To attract brilliant students and researchers
To raise interest in CanESS as the potential next reference tool for energy modeling
b. Define the audience
Academics: students, professors, postdoc
Decision makers: governments, NGO, companies
c. Outline the design
Five sections:
e. Develop interactive visualizations
3 chart-types retained
Interactive panel to control scope, scale and time
c. Plus: this initiative is in Canada

CanESS – a dynamic systems modelling approach
simulates scenarios in the context of the Canadian economy and the demand and supply of fuels for Canada
scenarios run from 2010 to 2100 in one year steps
calibrated over historical time from 1978 to 2010 in one year steps
stocks in 2010 (vehicles, dwellings, equipment, fuel production capacity, population, etc) are the common starting point for all scenarios
new technologies for energy use and fuel production can be introduced only as new stocks and new capacity are required for expansion and/or replacement of the stock
“Build interactive website to deliver data and graphics on historical energy system dynamics” (Objective 2 of the CSEE application for funding)
“Simulate Canada’s future energy system under a variety of future scenario [… and made them] available on the website” (Objective 3)
Still and animated Sankey diagrams (possibly in 3D) based on CanESS output (Objective 4)
a. Objectives of the website
