Rumi is an open-source energy-systems modelling platform developed by Prayas (Energy Group) with a focus on demand-oriented modelling. Rumi will complement and strengthen the eco-system of energy models in India, and contribute to enriching the understanding of possible future trajectories of the energy sector as it goes through a period of rapid transition. Rumi will soon be made available for free download and use by the wider energy research community.
This slide-deck provides details about the approach, methodology, assumptions and data sources used in the current version of Rumi. It also provides some insights and results obtained from the model, and comparisons of its results with a few other similar models.
