Abstract This paper develops a path for the global energy system up to 2050, using an open-source energy modeling system, called OSeMOSYS. The model uses a system of linear equations of the energy system to search for lowest-cost solutions for a secure energy supply, given externally defined constraints on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). We find that a largely renewables-based energy system is the preferable option in the case of strict targets on greenhouse gas emissions. An additional contribution is the provision of an open-source model, fully calibrated and flexible for different uses, provided to the modeling community.
