Project overview

4NEMO – Research Network for the Development of New Methods in Energysystem Modeling

The 4NEMO project aims at an extended integration of economic and social dynamics and related uncertainties into energysystem models. For this purpose, existing models will be developed further in order to allow for a better comparison between models. Moreover, integrated scenarios will be developed and used to conduct a model comparison exercise. Respective results will be used to show strengths, weaknesses and comparative advantages of the different models and to improve the transparency in energy-system modeling.
