Prioritising on key modelling areas of high relevance to energy systems, innovative interdisciplinary analyses will generate a range of new, forward looking insights. Overview research themes are:
How does energy demand co-evolve with changes in practice, supply, and policy?
How will the endogenous, uncertain, and path dependent process of technological change impact future energy systems?
How can the energy supply-demand system be optimised over multiple energy vectors and infrastructures?
What are the major future physical and economic interactions and stresses between the UK energy system and the broader environment?
