SET-Nav Press Release May 2018
Energy Modelling Platform for Europe 2018

Modelling clean energy pathways

September 25th – 26th, 2018

The cluster of four Horizon 2020 project (SET-Nav, MEDEAS, REEEM, REFLEX) working on “Modelling and analysing the energy system, its transformation and impacts”, are pleased to invite you to the second conference of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) 2018, hosted by the European Commission DG Research & Innovation in Brussels on September 25th and 26th. Find more here.

Day 1: Plenary sessions

The agenda of this year’s conference of the Energy Modelling Platform includes on day one three plenary sessions to discuss the following key conference themes, through panels and with the audience:

  • Innovation in the energy transition;
  • Integrated modelling of energy and resource efficiency;
  • Modelling of aspects of energy consumption behaviour.

Thanks to the active involvement of EC representatives, stakeholders from policy making and industry as well as leading researchers, we can ensure to bridge the gap between modelling research and policy making at European, regional and local level.

Day 2: Focus groups

On day two, you will have the possibility to participate in three out of nine parallel focus groups, dealing with specialized topics such as:

a) Infrastructure prerequisites – upcoming network challenges
b) Energy, climate and macroeconomic relationships
c) Technology learning
d) Open energy system models
e) Modelling of behavioural aspects
f) Open databases
g) Regional vs. national vs. Europe-wide modelling
h) Energy modelling and the Water-Energy-Food Nexus Conundrum
i) Engaging with policy makers

Focus groups particularly emphasize group discussions and interactive exchange of experiences between the participants. Seven focus groups are set up and headed by researchers from either SET-Nav, MEDEAS, REFLEX or REEEM projects, while two focus groups slots are organized by external researchers from the modelling community.
