Oemof stands for “Open Energy System Modelling Framework” and provides a free, open source and clearly documented model to analyse energy supply systems. It is developed in Python and designed as a framework with a modular structure containing several packages which communicate through well defined interfaces.
With oemof we provide base packages for energy system modelling and optimisation.
sudo pip3 install oemof

Further packages within oemof¶
The linkage of specific modules of the various packages is called an application (app) and depicts for example a concrete energy system model.
There is one executable example energy system in Storage optimization.
Further example apps in development can be found in Development examples.
