Sustainable Development through Energy System Modelling and Policy Analyses

19 January 2017
8:30 am to 5:50 pm

Hotel Jen Tanglin
The Gallery, Level 2

The importance of energy and environment in economic growth and well-being has been widely recognised after decades of debates and practices. Higher standards of living at the expense of aggravated environmental pollution and accelerated depletion of natural resources is starting to lose popularity all over the world. To achieve the overarching goal of sustainable development, many countries have launched a basket of policies on energy and environment related issues, such as energy efficiency improvement, energy market reform, R&D on renewable and clean energy, low-carbon technology, carbon pricing, waste management, water and air pollution, deforestation and land degradation, etc. These policy packages would exert significant influences on the local economy as well as on other countries through international trade; it also provide lessons and implications to countries that have similar sustainable development proposals on the agenda.

In the meantime, many energy system modelling frameworks have been developed to support national policy making and regional/international initiatives. The economyenergy- environment (E3) modelling framework includes the top-down economy-wide model, bottom-up technology rich model, sectoral energy system model, integrated assessment model, life cycle assessment model, climate impact model, decision making model, forecasting model, data mining model, etc. Policy analysis based on these models can provide insights about the interrelationships among economic development, energy consumption, and the resulting impacts on environment. There are also growing interest in integrating the different models into a comprehensive modelling platform. This workshop will focus on the developments of energy system models and their applications on sustainable development related issues at the city, national, regional, and global levels.
