The first step of the scenario set up is to define the energy hubs you want to model.
“An energy hub is a multi-carrier energy system consisting of multiple energy conversion, storage and/or network technologies, and characterized by some degree of local control. Energy hubs may exist on different spatial scales, from the level of a single building to a larger geographic region.”

The energy hub is representing a subsystem of the whole energy system to be modelled. Different energy hubs can then be connected through networks that allow the flow of an energy carrier from one hub to the next. (See diagram below)
