Project structure and credits

Project structure and credits#

The PyPSA-Earth model is maintained by the members of the PyPSA meets Earth initiative. We implemented in the initiative a project structure to enhance collaboration and give people responsibilities. Therefore, the structure is not here to dictate, it is rather a structure that let people organise and think from different angles about the project.

We all have the same goal. We want to create a long-term maintained, supported and steadily improving energy system model that is useful for industry and research. Every person helping towards achieving this goal is listed in the credits.

The structure might be adjusted in future:
