How can the energy system of the future look like?

This project does not produce a forecast for the future development of the energy system, but is intended to show interdependencies by comparing scenarios. Thus, path dependencies and robust developments on the way to greenhouse gas neutrality can be identified. In order to adequately capture the increasing interactions between the sectors, the use of a complex model network is necessary. In the Long-term Scenarios III project, we couple specialized sector models for buildings, industry, household appliances and tertiary processes and appliances, energy supply, gas grids und electricity grids to achieve the highest possible resolution. These models are each maintained by separate teams. In the scenario explorer you can analyze the constantly growing dataset.
