CLEWs Global: An open source, open data Climate, Land, Energy, and Water systems model generator

Resource type
Date created
In this paper we document the development of the Climate, Land, Energy, and Water systems (CLEWs) Global open modelling tool. With CLEWs Global, we seek to increase the accessibility of multi-resource models, as well as standardize and automate workflows already in use. Following the release of OSeMOSYS Global, and the evolution of CLEWs models, we build on this progress to provide a standardized process for creating a base CLEWs model of any country or countries. The data requirements for a full CLEWs model are generally higher due to representing more systems, and so providing a simple set up for the data sets used in most CLEWs models will expedite the development of more CLEWs models and studies, with the goal of providing better policy advice. To demonstrate the CLEWs Global workflow, results for a Canada case study is provided.
