Modelling Climate Neutrality for the European Green Deal
The Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) constitutes a forum for exchanging research, development and practice of energy system modelling in Europe and, where feasible, promote the sharing of data and resources. It provides a peer-reviewed digest of models and policy insights for the transformation of the European energy system and thus increases the efficiency, integrity and access to European energy modelling data, scenarios, tools and results. Its contributors are researchers and modelling groups from across Europe, partners from industry, civil society and policy makers. A key feature is inputs received by the European Commission’s Directorate Generals Research & Innovation, Joint Research Centre and Energy.
EMP-E was created in 2017 and is since then co-organised by H2020 projects in the field of Energy Modelling: openEntrance is leading the EMP-E 2020 organisation, with plan4res, Magnitude, planet, Spice, Sentinel, Navigate and AuresII.
EMP-E is based on three pillars:
- An online platform for continuous exchange between modellers working on the European energy system and transition;
- A yearly conference, bringing together scientists, industry, civil society and policy makers to discuss cutting edge energy modelling issues;
- A Special Issue of a peer-reviewed journal collecting the contributions of the participants of each conference.
You may explore the contributions to each of these pillars in the different sections of this website.
This year’s conference will take place online, and will cover the following topics:
- Impact of COVID-19 on the energy system: what happened during the crisis? What are the consequences on future energy modelling?
- Climate Neutral Pathways, scenarios and storylines: Useful lessons learned and strategies for the European Green Deal
- Climate neutrality: energy modelling, weather and climate
- Circularity, use of raw material
- Socio and economic impacts of the transition
- Consumer and Citizen Engagement
- Sector integration: Decarbonisation through multi-energy carrier integration
- Smart cities, Smart grids and digitalization: Modelling insights and lessons learned
- Infrastructure for integrating models across spatial and sectoral scales to facilitate openness and transparency
- Energy modelling tools contributions to National Energy/Climate plans
- Transformation of the Energy system: centralization vs further decentralization
- Uncertainty and modelling: lessons learned and gaps
