International model intercomparison projects

The Energy (ENE) Program has been at the forefront of several research efforts for the wider science community. These include the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) and two international model inter-comparison projects that were successfully completed in 2013 (EMF27 and AMPERE).

The SSPs and the two completed projects represent multi-year research efforts resulting in a range of robust insights into strategies to address climate change and other energy challenges.

They involve numerous international partners (more than 20) from the integrated assessment and other expert research communities.

Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs)

Through its integrated assessment work, the Energy (ENE) Program has played a central role in shaping community-wide climate research activities, including the so-called Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs). More

Intercomparison EMF27

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

International model intercomparison project, AMPERE

Within the framework of the AMPERE project, ENE in 2013 led the multi-model comparison effort involving international partners from Asia, the United States and Europe to evaluate the impact of near-term climate policies. More
