This part of the project reviews the available research on the modelling of heat decarbonisation.
Review of existing modelling of proposals for heat decarbonisation from an energy systems architecture perspective
This part of the work is looking at what the major challenges of decarbonising heat are, and how modelling can support the analysis of different solutions. We are undertaking a review of existing whole system modelling approaches, and exploring whether they can effectively assess heat decarbonisation pathways for the building sector. This is from an energy system architecture perspective, which focuses on whether models can help explore issues around system evolvability, flexibility, robustness (under uncertainty), and feasibility.
What we are asking:
- What are the challenges to effectively modelling the decarbonising heat?
