Quantitative scenarios form the core of the future analysis in the energy, climate and other environment-related fields. A growing number of researchers worldwide start using innovative techniques for developing, analysing and choosing quantitative scenarios. Some of these techniques involve a large number of scenarios. Different rationales motivate these researchers: better system understanding, uncertainty analysis, development of robust strategies, selection of a small set of scenarios, ability to link storylines with quantitative scenarios and other. These techniques are argued to provide both novel research insights and policy-relevant scenario exercises.
This research methodology-oriented workshop IQ SCENE aims to:
- For the first time, bring together the key researchers that use these innovative techniques for developing, analysing and choosing quantitative scenarios in energy and environmental research;
- Gather these existing techniques into one toolbox, share experiences and thoughts for future research;
- Actively disseminate the workshop results in the academic community.
