The COVID-19 pandemic has seen dramatic demand surges for hospital care that have placed a severe strain on health systems worldwide. As a result, policy makers are faced with the challenge of managing scarce hospital capacity so as to reduce the backlog of non-COVID patients whilst maintaining the ability to respond to any potential future … Read more

Decision support for strategic energy planning: a complete robust optimization framework

This paper presents a complete robust optimization framework to deal with a large range of uncertainties in optimization-based energy models. Robust formulations are proposed to address specific features of long- term energy models – such as multiplied uncertain parameters in the objective and many uncertainties in the constraints. Then, we introduce an original approach to … Read more
