2022 – 2026
The ONEPlanET project aims to develop a common Nexus modelling framework to simulate and evaluate pathways to define a more sustainable future in Africa through the deployment of renewable energy infrastructure. In this way, it will be possible to stimulate a green energy transition in the continent as well as a decarbonization of existing energy plants.
The official website of the project is: PROJECT ONE PLANET.
2022 – 2024
SPANDAM is a project financed by the EU through the Investigation State Agency, whose objective is to develop a simulation tool (small scale prototype) that can guide decision-making and public policies aiming to achieve a balanced and sustainable demographic, socioeconomic and environmental development in areas affected by depopulation.
The official web of the project is: SPANDAM.
2021 – 2025
The main objective of RethinkAction is to engage citizens and decision-makers to participate in the energy transition and actively support climate adaptation and mitigation. The focus is on land use as a key driver, even critical, to sustain life and to reach climate objectives and SDGs in the context of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The official web of the project is RETHINKACTION PROJECT.
2022 – 2026
The final objective of the NEVERMORE project is the better understanding of the different interactions between the adaptation and mitigation policies of climate change to provide with public policy options in the direction of a carbon neutral and resilient society.
The official web of the project is: NEVERMORE PROJECT.
2022 – 2025
The overall objective of the IAM COMPACT Project is to pay more attention to the social aspects of the climate and energy transition: especially to directly take into account lifestyle changes and individual choices as well as to integrate climate action as an aspect of overall sustainability.
The official website of the project is: IAM COMPACT PROJECT.
2019 – 2023
The overall objective of LOCOMOTION is to enhance existing Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) in order to provide policy makers and relevant stakeholders with a reliable and practical model system to assess the feasibility, effectiveness, costs and impacts of different sustainability policy options, and to identify the most effective transition pathways towards a low-carbon society.
The official web of the project is: LOCOMOTION PROJECT.
2016 – 2020
The transition to a low-carbon economy must achieve multiple objectives: competitiveness, environmental protection, quality job creation and social welfare. Therefore, policy makers and other key stakeholders require tools that must focus beyond the energy sector to include these other economic, social and environmental domains. MEDEAS aims to solve the current needs for integration and transparency by developing a state-of-the-art policy modeling tool based on WoLiM, TIMES and LEAP models and incorporating Input-Output Analysis, which allows accounting for environmental, social and economic impacts.
The official website of the project is: MEDEAS PROJECT.
2017 – 2021
Encouraged by the recommendations of the IPCC in its successive reports, several international organizations have called for countries to initiate a serious energy transition path towards a low carbon economy by 2050. The project aims to analyze these challenges through the design and development of an integrated energy-economy-climate change simulation and evaluation model that will allow the assessment of Spain’s energy transition towards a low carbon economy (Low-Carbon Economy) in the 2030-2050 horizon.
Red Temática de Modelizacion Energética para una Transición Energética Sostenible (MENTES NETWORK)
The objectives of the network are to bring together national research groups that, from different angles and methodological approaches, work in energy modeling in order to: exploit synergies and complementarities, align priorities that adapt and respond to the needs and challenges posed by the energy transition, constitute a reference group at national and international level in energy modeling that can support agents in decision making, promote capacity building in the field of the network, participate jointly in R&D&I projects and transmit the results to society.
