Idea / Idée
Energy Alternatives Planning system (LEAP) and Water Evaluation and Planning system (WEAP) developed by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) are widely used modeling tools with a strong community of practice in the MENA region.
LEAP is a flexible platform for energy system and climate mitigation modeling and analysis, and WEAP is a tool for integrated water resources modeling and planning. Both systems emphasize usability, scalability, scenario assessment, and transparency. As the developer of LEAP and WEAP tools, SEI developed a toolkit and approaches for linking LEAP and WEAP models to conduct integrated analyses of energy and water systems.
This webinar will provide an introduction to integrated LEAP-WEAP modeling, including concepts, techniques, and selected examples.
The webinar will be aimed at participants who have prior experience with energy and/or water systems modeling, particularly with LEAP, WEAP, or both. It will be on GoToWebinar. It will be conducted by a SEI expert in English, and both video and audio will be recorded.
