NCES2020: Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios

The project Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios aims at identifying technological solutions to a carbon neutral Nordic region. It further aims at developing energy scenarios for the Nordic energy sector enabling the Nordic commitment to reach carbon neutrality.

NCES2020 brings together nine teams from four Nordic countries, with complementing modelling and analytical skills. Combined with use of open access energy system models and data, this strengthens Nordic cooperation and expertise in energy modelling. The ambition is to avoid the modelling exercise becoming a black box that is only accessible for a small group of peers to assess progress in the Nordic countries towards national goals. The resulting OpeN source TIMES model (ONTIMES) has been developed and used for analysing greenhouse gas (GHG) pathways for the Nordic GHG reduction targets.

Implementation date: March 2020 – April 2021.

Scope of delivery: reports, policy briefs, workshops and an energy modelling development.
