SparkCity is an agent based model of a city that gets its energy from sustainable electricity. The model lets us explore and compare scenario’s to speed up this transition.

The focus of SparkCity is on individuals living in neighborhoods that use electric vehicles, heat pumps, solar panels, solar boilers, inductive cooking and insulation. The electricity grid connects them to an environment with energy from wind and solar.

SparkCity is an initiative of the TU/e, Elaad and Alliander. It is modeled in GAMA.
