A flexible methodology for optimisation of complex energy service systems with multiple energy carriers is presented. The methodology includes technical, economic and environmental aspects, and will enable public and corporate decision makers to carry out comprehensive analyses of energy supply systems with respect to investments, environmental impacts and consequences of different regulating regimes. The methodology is based on components with standard interface combined in a generic energy system model. The model is then mapped to a nodal network (graph) for overall system analysis and optimisation.
