Hi, I am using WEAP model for evaluation of water demand and supply. current account is 2008 and reference is 2009-2016 and a reservoir is operating only 2016, it means start up year for operation of reservoir is 2016. Please let me know how to add initial storage.

Thank you
Stephanie Galaitsi

Dear Rateb,

When you build a reservoir in the future, it doesn't have initial storage - or you can think of your initial storage as zero (the reservoir starts out empty). Once it becomes active (in your Start Up Year), it will start filling from a value of zero.

Initial Storage only applies to reservoirs that already exist in the Current Accounts year - WEAP wants to know where to start counting from in the very first time step of your model.
