Potentials results The Water-Energy Nexus provides a conceptual framework to describe the complex and interrelated nature of an energy system. It allows to better understand the interactions and to work towards a comprehensive approach to the critical resources management.Examples of results from TIMES MACRO Stand Alone (MSA) model that eestimates potential reduction in macro consumption (GDP Loss). Other results from the MSA model are energy service demand reductions, total final consumption, emissions…The Sankey diagram shows scenario results from the Irish-TIMES model, the Ireland’s energy system model. It represents forecasted energy flows in a scenario with an 80% CO2 emissions reduction target for 2050Source: Deane J.P, Curtis J., Chiodi A, Gargiulo M., Rogan F., Dineen D., Glynn J., Fitz Gerald J. and Ó Gallachóir 2013 Low Carbon Energy Roadmap for Ireland.

Information Springer.comAnalysis is meant to explore the direct economic advantage of cooperation policies among the four Central Asian Caspian Countries: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan. The following cooperation policies in the area are directly modelled: - exploitation of Caspian oil and natural gas resources; - investment in the construction of new pipelines; - maintenance of free exchange in the energy sector; - creation of a joint CO2 emission permit system in the area.
