The cluster LCE-21-2015 successfully organised the Third Meeting of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) 2019 in Brussels

Energy Modelling Platform for Europe 2019

 

Modelling the implementation of A Clean Planet For All Strategy

October 8th – 9th , 2019

EC headquarters, Brussels 21 rue du champ de Mars – Marsveldstraat, 1050 Brussels

 

The cluster of nine Horizon 2020 projects[i] working on “Modelling and analysing the energy system, its transformation and impacts”, organised the third conference of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) 2019, hosted by the European Commission DG Research & Innovation in Brussels on October 8th and 9th.


[i] All nine projects (MEDEAS, MAGIC, MAGNITUDE, plan4res, PLANET, REEEM, Reflex, SET-Nav and Spine)  have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

 

Day 1: Plenary sessions

The agenda of this year’s conference of the Energy Modelling Platform included on day one four plenary sessions. Thanks to the active involvement of EC representatives, stakeholders from policy making and industry as well as leading researchers, we managed to bridge the gap between modelling research and policy making at European, regional and local level.

09:30 - 10:00 WELCOME & INTRODUCTION
​10:00 - 11:00 PLENARY SESSION I: ACHIEVING AMBITIOUS RES DEPLOYMENT IN A MULTI-COUPLED EUROPEAN ENERGY SYSTEM - TECHNO-ECONOMIC, FINANCIAL AND SOCIETAL CHALLENGES
11:00 - 11:30 POSTER SNEAK PEEK I
11:30 - 12:00 COFFEE BREAK
12:00 - 13:00 PLENARY SESSION II: THE EFFECTS OF EXTERNALISATION ON DECARBONISATION
13:00 - 14:30 LUNCH BREAK / POSTER SESSION
14:30 - 15:30 PLENARY SESSION III: PANEL DISCUSSION ON PATHWAYS AND SCENARIOS TOWARDS THE PARIS AGREEMENT - LESSONS LEARNT AND KEY TAKEAWAY MESSAGES FROM THE H2020 LCE21 PROJECTS

Moderator:  Alban Kitous (DG Clima, European Commission - tbc)

Panelists:    Mark Howells (KTH Royal Institute of Technology - REEEM), 
                         Gustav Resch (TU Wien - SET-Nav),
                         Jordi Solé Ollé (ICM-CSIC - MEDEAS)
​                         Dominik Möst (TU Dresden - REflex)

The session consists in a semi-structured panel discussion among representatives of the four projects funded under the H2020 call LCE21-2015 and the audience, moderated by the European Commission's Directorate Generals for Climate and for Energy. The discussion focuses on the policy insights and the final outcomes of the four projects and on how these can support the achievement of the goals of the new Long Term Strategy and the Paris Agreement.
