We introduce the open-source Python software framework pycity_scheduling for the effective development, testing, and assessment of optimisation-based power scheduling algorithms for local multi-energy systems in city districts. The framework primarily targets the elaboration of coordination concepts that can efficiently solve the power dispatch problem on the city district level. Its target users are researchers in the field of smart grid applications and the deployment of operational

The design principles established in pycity_scheduling allows users to access, extend, and modify the Python package without any need for commercial software or licensing concerns.
