Research and Analysis

E4SMA experts realize research and analysis in the area of climate and energy policy by using multi-disciplinary approaches and integrated assessments. We realize scenario analysis, economic impact assessments and technology database development at local, regional, national and supra-national scale.

Models

E4SMA offers to its clients the possibility to develop techno-economic modelling instruments which are able to represent the complexity of the energy systems and to explore its dynamics.

Training and Capacity Building

E4SMA provides:

  • Assistance and technical advice on key modelling techniques, energy systems analysis and scenario development;
  • Support and guidance for team building able to directly develop and use modelling tools;
  • Training in MARKAL/TIMES model generators and VEDA-TIMES shell.

E4SMA in four letters

E4: Energy, Engineering, Economic and Environment. A comprehensive assessment.

S: Systems. Approaches that look at the interactions between components of a system to capture its functioning as a whole.

M: Modelling. Case-specific representation of the “key” system features which makes use of a formal language for the realisation of exploratory, simulation, optimization decision-support tools.

A: Analysis. Integrated impact assessment of technological, economic, policy, environmental components of current and future energy systems.
