Implementation methodologies

By conducting analysis, scenario modelling, strategy formulation, and training sessions to support the analysis of complex changes in terms of capital stock turnover, technological change and changing energy demand.

Based on the scenario analysis, robust policy strategies will be proposed that account for uncertainty and risk on a continental, regional, and national level. Insights and tools will be transferred to countries to support the development of national policies. So far, the work is undertaken in collaboration with various universities, regional and national energy centres and organizations, utilities and their associations and equipment suppliers.
