The EU’s energy system modelling – critique and recommendations

    577 818 Almut Bonhage

    There is a long history of criticising the PRIMES modelling and impact assessments by the European Commission, going back to industrial stakeholders criticising already in 2011 the lack of transparency in developing the “Energy Roadmap 2050”.Over the last years, energy efficiency stakeholders have voiced their critique regarding the use of discount rates and assessment approach. Based on this critique we have identified issues related to the transparency of the process, the assumptions made (input), and to the presentation of the results (output).
