Energy system models help us understand the impact of making changes to the energy system before we make them. The insights tend to vary significantly depending on the time-horizon in question. Some models focus on the short-term (years ahead) so... read more
18/11/2016
Energy systems have evolved from individual systems with little or no dependencies into a complex set of integrated systems at scales that include customers, cities, and regions. This evolution has been driven by political, economic, and... read more
