Methodologically oriented work focused on the quantification of uncertainties surrounding stringent greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios with a paper being published in the journal Nature on this subject.
The second area of methodological work focused on new modeling approaches of technological change and diffusion.
Both streams of technology-related research have built upon the empirical analysis and meta-studies carried out in the Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) Program, and are thus a prime example of how collaborative efforts within IIASA can enrich the integrated assessment modeling work in Energy (ENE).
A highly visible stream of methodologically oriented work by the Energy (ENE) Program focused on the quantification of uncertainties surrounding stringent greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios and was published in the journal Nature in early 2013. More
In collaboration with the Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) Program under a research contract and in collaboration with the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth, Japan, an endogenous model formulation for technology diffusion constraints was developed and parameterized.
