Introduction to the POLES model

This presentation, by EnerFuture, offers an introduction to the POLES model. The POLES model, or Prospective Outlook on Long-term Energy Systems, is an internationally recognized techno-economic model for projecting the supply & demand of energy commodities, energy prices, as well as the impact of climate change and energy policies on energy markets.

The simulation occurs on a year-to-year basis, with endogenous projection of energy prices. It provides a complete accounting of energy demand/supply of numerous energy vectors, associated technologies and greenhouse gases emissions and enables to customize and model possible carbon constraints levels, energy resources or technological assumptions.

The presentation includes details of the POLES model’s features, geographical and sectoral coverage, and sample simulations.
