Third Modellers' Exchange Workshop

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

On January 30th 2020, we were glad to host the 3rd Modellers' Exchange Workshop.
The workshop was in the context of the PAC project – Paris Agreement Compatible Scenariosfor Energy Infrastructure. Building on the first and second PAC Modellers’ Exchange workshops, the session focussed on how we can better model flexibility.

We were joined by Wiebke Albers, Head of System Analyses at innogy SE and Tobias Bossmann, Project Manager at Artelys for two thought-provoking inputs on flexibility.
 
The workshop is part of a collaboration between the Climate Action Network Europe, the European Environmental Bureau, ENTSO-E, ENTSO-G, REN21 and RGI launched in December 2018 to see how to reflect the targets of the Paris Agreement in the TYNDP scenarios and to form a widely accepted and robust Paris Agreement compatible European energy scenario for Europe.
