Science areas: Earth Sciences, Environmental Engineering, Economics and Business
This project aims to perform modeling studies to explore how future energy systems can evolve and to quantify the tradeoffs and interlinkages between different aspects of the global energy systems in the context of international climate change policy and sustainable development.
These analyses utilise Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), which are models of the energy, environment, and economic systems to quantify key variables of interest in these scenarios - such as emissions pathways consistent with international climate policy goals, tradeoffs of climate mitigation with land use and food security, among others.
This project will provide a proof-of-principle platform aimed at performing large scale analyses.
