SERF12

EFDA-TIMES model. Euratom-Fusion Programme. 2012.

The objectives this year are to review the long term global energy scenarios published by international organisations such as IEA, IIASA, etc. After the revision, some scenarios will be implemented with the EFDA Times model (ETM) and the results will be analysed. The same assumptions will be taken to run those scenarios with the ETSAP-TIAM global energy model to compare the results with those from ETM, with special focus on the electricity production. Finally, an analysis on the potential competence between nuclear fusion and renewable technologies in a low carbon global energy system will be carry out.
