The GIS-OptiCE model development has been partially financed by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation through the project "Future Energy" at Mälardalen University and by the Swedish Energy Agency through the project "Improved calculation of PV power generation in Sweden" for solar energy applications.


The model development has been made possible thanks to the collaboration between researchers at Mälardalen University, KTH-Royal Institute of Technology, NASA, SMHI, University of Maryland-College Park, and Uppsala University.

In 2019 and 2020, SWEDIMS has received financial support from Future Energy Center at Mälardalen University through the projects "Towards An Optimal Irrigation Management System from the Water-Food-Energy Nexus Perspective" and "A Gridded Water-Food-Energy Nexus Management System for Sweden".


The continous support received from Biosfärområde Blekinge Arkipelag is highly appreciated.
