wholeSEM builds and links energy models to provide a fundamental underpinning role for the UK’s national strategic energy modelling activity. The consortium will provide continuity of funding to develop new models, retain human capacity, and link modelling frameworks in innovative ways to answer new research questions.
The consortium will employ extensive integration mechanisms to link and apply interdisciplinary models to key energy policy problems, with substantive bilateral engagement with stakeholders in academia, government and industry. The consortium is led by University College London and consists of Imperial College London, the University of Cambridge and the University of Surrey. The consortium is funded by EPSRC.
