Applications

IEA-ETSAP energy system analysis applications are ideal for long-term energy-environment modeling in the context of climate change. Applications made using the IEA-ETSAP have several important advantages. The analysis is highly detailed and therefore the recommendations are reliable. There is a large community of users and everyone can benefit from innovations done by everyone else. Another benefit is that the methodology has been tried and tested exhaustively over the years. The methodology is also very transparent and well documented. It is therefore possible for a researcher to know exactly how the analysis is being done and if so desired changes can be made as well. These changes in turn lead to incremental refinement.

IEA-ETSAP Energy Systems Analysis Applications

The IEA-ETSAP methodology was used to develop Global Integrated Assessment models and Global Energy models. The models were used to explore alternative global climate scenarios (ETSAP-TIAM) and Global energy technology development scenarios (ETP TIMES model).

Regional TIMES models include a Pan-European TIMES that has been developed and expanded in a number of EU funded projects. Twenty eight country models are linked in an EU wide model taking into account the main energy – environmental policies at national level. The reference energy technology database includes a fairly complete set of technologies and a set of default technological and economical parameters for Europe.

National model applications of the TIMES model focus on energy planning and policy issues, taking into account renewable energy deployments, environment effects and national obligation for emissions reduction. The modeling teams interact with the National Governments in order to determine the best possible pathways for achieving policy targets.

TIMES is currently being applied to the analysis of local energy systems at the level of cities. A number of projects are under development trying to apply the advances TIMES methodology to the complex issues of planning the development of cities from the energy point of view.

TIMES was used in a number of different applications through the years. A report is issued every three years summarising all the applications through a review of all the relevant publications and presentations.
