wholeSEM Annual Conference 2014 - Modelling Long-term UK Energy Futures: Challenges and Competing Objectives.
Jul 08, 2014 10:00 AM
End: Jul 09, 2014 02:30 PM
Location: Royal Academy of Engineering, Prince Philip House
The 1st annual conference of the Whole Systems Energy Modelling (wholeSEM) consortium focused on modelling and modelling insights. The overall aim was to take the latest UK government long term pathways and to analyse these from alternate modelling perspectives. These models are taken from the wholeSEM consortium, notably behavioural responses, the dynamics of technological change, the role of key infrastructures, and the wider environmental implications. This will be supplemented by and contrasted with wider UK modelling expertise. Finally the modelling outputs will be framed by senior UK energy decision makers to comment on the consistent implementation of these (sometime competing) modelling insights in the UK policy framework.
