Welcome

The three sister organizations KanORS-EMR (India), HALOA Inc. (Canada) and KanLo Consultants (France), offer more than 30 years of expertise in mathematical and economic modelling of energy and environment systems, directed at the analysis of local, national, multi-country and global policies in the domain of energy and the environment. We also design and construct customized interfaces for the user-friendly exploitation of databases and results from complex mathematical and economic models in all domains, via the flexible VEDA environment (the VErsatile Data Analyst).

Our strength derives from a unique blend of strong theoretical and algorithmic expertise, experience with the construction and use of large models, and ability to build advanced software tools to facilitate and enhance the construction, handling, and maintenance of large scale models.

Projects

We operate in the following three areas:

Models

Software

We have developed two main applications specifically designed to support data-handling around large- scale mathematical models: VEDA-FrontEnd supports MARKAL and TIMES models, and is being used in several multi-region applications in USA and Europe. VEDA-BackEnd is a very versatile and powerful interface to look at a variety of data, including results from models. It is particulary easy to use with GAMS models; a utility GDX2VEDA generates the required input files, which configure VEDA (on the fly) to the structure of any model.
There are licensed VEDA users in 45 countries (109 cities).
