Workshops

 

Workshops are a vital part of the PAC project. They are how the project team reaches out to civil society, industry and technical experts to better understand what a Paris compatible energy scenario for Europe could look like. The workshops also act as an important forum for organisations working on energy and climate issues to exchange ideas and to grow our collective knowledge. The PAC project organises two different workshop series. If you are interested in participating in either one of them, please reach out to us via info@pac-scenarios.eu. Please note that workshop participation is upon invitation only.

Experts Workshops

Bringing together experts from the modelling community and stakeholders with a strong interest in modelling, each workshop focuses on a distinct challenge in modelling a future energy system and discusses how different stakeholders deal with new complexities in their work. These workshops occur under an invitation-only format.

Expert Workshop: Industry in Transition – The role of electricity grids in decarbonising European industry

Organised within the framework of the PAC project, the workshop brought around 20 experts together to discuss the role of electricity grids to decarbonise the European industry. Through topical...

Modellers' Exchange Workshop: Role of green hydrogen in future decarbonised and optimised European energy systems

Fourth Modellers' Exchange Workshop

The fourth workshop in the Modellers' Exchange series focussed on the question: How can distribution grids be represented in energy system planning?

Third Modellers' Exchange Workshop

Building on the first and second PAC Modellers’ Exchange workshops, the session focussed on how we can better model flexibility.

Public Events

Allowing participants to discuss assumptions on energy generation mix, consumption patterns, prices, technology development (among others) to develop a robust PAC scenario. The events are primarily aimed at civil society representatives with expert inputs from industry, academia and the policy sphere, but are open for anyone to join.
