Intercomparison EMF27

EMF27 was one of two international model inter-comparison projects that were successfully completed in 2013.

CO2 storage

Exploring the role of technology for achieving ambitious climate targets was the focus of the Stanford University Energy Modeling Forum (EMF27). ENE researchers David McCollum, Volker Krey, and Keywan Riahi, have been leading several activities within the EMF27 project, including an assessment of the value of alternative technologies for mitigation and the role of fossil energy resources and CO2 storage in scenarios of transformational change.

The results are summarized in a Special Issue of Climatic Change [1].

AMPERE and the EMF27 project represent multi-year research efforts resulting in a range of robust insights into strategies to address climate change and other energy challenges, and involving numerous international partners (more than 20) from the integrated assessment and other expert research communities.
