Indirect CO2 Emission Implications of Energy System Pathways: Linking IO and TIMES Models for the UK

Research article by Kate Scott, Neil Strachan, John Barrett on 8 Jun 2015

Radical changes to current national energy systems–including energy efficiency and the decarbonization of electricity–will be required in order to meet challenging carbon emission reduction commitments. Technology explicit energy system optimization models (ESOMs) are widely used to define and assess such low-carbon pathways, but these models only account for the emissions associated with energy combustion and […]
