ETSAP-UCC Workshop '14

Methodologies linking energy systems models and economic models
The Energy Policy and Modelling Group hosted an IEA-ETSAP funded international workshop on methodologies linking energy systems and economic models. The purpose of this workshop is to exchange experiences (methodologies and applications) on integrating energy systems models (with a particular focus on MARKAL and TIMES models) with economic models (with a particular focus on input-output and CGE models). The objective is to improve methodologies for providing feedback from energy systems model results to the economic drivers and for determining the economic impacts of different energy scenarios. The workshop took place the 4-5 February 2014. The agenda and delivered presentations are available for download below.
