How might we use energy in the future? The BLUE model explained

Researchers at UCL have been working to build the Behaviour, Lifestyles and Uncertainty Energy (BLUE) model.

BLUE is a system dynamic model of the UK energy system that tries to capture important parts of how we use energy in the UK today, the large number of different ways we might use energy in future, and the journey we might go on to get there by simulating future energy transitions and the associated changes to technologies, energy use and emissions.

wholeSEM and UCL-Energy have released a short animation to explain some of the research done using the BLUE model. Watch the video to find out more. More...
