"Integrating Energy Sufficiency into Modelling of Sustainable Energy Scenarios" - IESMOSES Project: 2020 - 2022
Nordic - Baltic Counties

The project's main objectives are to integrate sufficiency aspects into energy modelling tools, develop modified Danish, Latvian and Lithuanian national sustainable energy scenarios, create national policy dialogues among public and private actors in the Nordic and Baltic countries about energy scenarios with energy sufficiency.
Project period: January 2020 - March 2022

Reports of the Project Integrating Energy Sufficiency into Modelling of Sustainable Energy ScenariosThe main results of the project are in the Project's reports:

Overview of project and reports (pdf, 1 page)
