Jamaica Energy Model (JEM)
A high-level power flow model of Jamaica’s energy system
This repository contains a simulation model for Jamaica’s energy system formulated as an arc-node network. Based on a given supply and demand curve, JEM solves for flows of electricity across the network using linear programming.
NOTE: The tool is currently under development and all code published here is part of an on-going project.

The model requires Gurobi and the associated GurobiPy library for the optimisation. In addition, standard scientific libraries in Python are needed such as pandas, numpy, matplotlib etc. Requirements for spatial network analysis include QGis, geopandas, and snkit.
Note: The Gurobi package requires a license for usage but this can be obtained freely for academic use.
This work is supported part of the Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment (CCRI) project on creating a platform for infrastructure risk assessment and resilient investment prioritisation in Jamaica and is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).
