METIS is a mathematical model providing analysis of the European energy system. It simulates the operation of energy systems and markets on an hourly basis over a year, while factoring in uncertainties like weather variations. In order to determine the potential contribution of district heating networks to the reduction of energy demand and emissions, the district heat dimension is added to the METIS model.
