Get involved!

The PyPSA meets Earth initiative works on open modelling, open data, open source solver support and open communities for energy system planning. Many of the data, model, solver activities are neutral to the model framework, opening the door for collaboration also outside of the PyPSA space. The tools are developed and maintained by members of the multi-organizational PyPSA developer team

The team focuses on European activities while the PyPSA meets Earth initative focuses on activities outside of Europe.

Open Community

Check out our Discord server

The heart of the community life is happening on Discord (which we describe as better Slack alternative). We hold there all our meetings, coffee breaks and exchanges. Discord provides voice channels, text channels, and event stages. This also allows you to meet up or host your own events if desired.

Check out our Github Repository

You can find our developments in the GitHub repository, where you can join our community, create issues, share ideas and discuss with us. All of our developments are open source and GPL3 or MIT licensed, meaning they must stay open. Even the website you are looking at is open source. Feel free to use it and suggest improvements.

Check out our Documentation

The documentation describes in more detail how you can contribute, how our project is structured and further provides the code documentation. Additionally, we share learning materials and some relevant talks and papers in the roam of PyPSA and Earth modelling. The documentation is also open, feel free to make it better.
