Energy Planning Optimization


Im currently starting my MEng thesis in chemical engineering with my focus on Energy Planning optimization for developing countries.
Im developing software to provide guidance for policy makers.
My supervisor is using python but I’m thinking about writing mine in julia.

What are some good resources for learning and directions I could go down.

Thank you,

Take a look at - there’s a brief overview by one of the main developers in this Twitter thread:
