Nature Energy publishes paper by wholeSEM's UCL Energy team 'Reinventing the energy modelling–policy interface'
2 March 2016
wholeSEM's Principal Investigator Professor Neil Strachan along with researchers Dr Birgit Fais and Dr Hannah Daly from our UCL-Energy team have had the paper ‘Reinventing the energy modelling–policy interface’ published in Nature Energy.
This paper examines the idea that energy modelling has a crucial underpinning role for policy making, but the modelling–policy interface faces several limitations. A reinvention of this interface would better provide timely, targeted, tested, transparent and iterated insights from such complex multi-disciplinary tools A reinvention of this interface would better provide timely, targeted, tested, transparent and iterated insights from such complex multi-disciplinary tools.
Our UCL-Energy team are currently collaborating with the Department of Energy and Climate
Change (DECC) to to make its UKTM energy systems model the UK government’s core tool in assessing long term energy pathways for the 5th carbon budget negotiation.
