Wisconsin Expansion of Renewable Electricity with Optimization under Long-term Forecasts


WEREWOLF is written in GAMS/Miro to enable interaction between non-expert users and the optimization model.  The Miro interface enables users to:

  • Modify critical data such as generator costs, transmission line capacities, demand projections
  • Activate/Deactivate various policy constraints (carbon goals, non-renewable energy constraints, non-renewable generation constraints)
  • Tune other structural elements of the model (limit where investments can be made, limit generator shutdowns)
  • Visualize outputs in interactive bar chart format, data is easily exported to CSV
  • Visualize outputs on interactive maps (powered by plotly)
