# Backbone
Backbone is a generic energy network optimization tool written in [GAMS](https://www.gams.com/). It has been designed to be highly adaptable in different dimensions: temporal, spatial, technology representation and market design. The model can represent stochastics with a [model predictive control method](https://doi.org/10.1016/j.automatica.2008.03.002), with short-term forecasts and longer-term statistical uncertainties. Backbone can support multiple different models due to the modifiable temporal structure and varying lengths of the time steps.

If you use Backbone in a published work, please cite the [following publication](https://doi.org/10.3390/en12173388), which describes the Backbone energy systems modelling framework.
