Energy Use at Night for 2013

EMF 24 Results Are Published

Aug 22 2014

EMF 24 focused on development and cross model comparison of a new generation of comprehensive international and domestic climate policy intervention scenarios focusing on technology strategies for achieving climate policy objectives. These scenarios enabled the community to exercise enhanced modeling capabilities that were focused on in previous EMF studies on the international trade implications of climate policies, the representation of technological change, and the incorporations of multi-gas mitigation and land use emissions and mitigation policy alternatives.

The EMF 24 Study on "U.S. Technology and Climate Policy Strategies.” focused on the development and cross model comparison of results from a new generation of comprehensive U.S. climate policy intervention scenarios focusing on technology strategies for achieving climate policy objectives. This study highlighted the interactions between climate policy architectures and advanced energy technology availabilities in the U.S.

EMF 24 study followed on most directly from EMF 19 on technology characteristics of baseline and 550 CO2 Stabilization Scenarios and EMF 22 on GHG Transition scenarios and International Participation, which is completely finished and published as a special issue of Energy Economics.

EMF 28 Study Special Issue Released

Nov 1 2013

A special issue of the EMF 28 study was published by the World Scientific Journal, The EMF 28 Study on Scenarios for Transforming the European Energy System.

The EMF 28 study provided insights into the debate of the long-term and near-term climate and energy strategies in Europe and addressed questions related to emission reduction targets, their timing, and technology mix to inform decision-makers in the climate policy arena. In that context, it should be noted that the EU strategy beyond 2020 is not yet defined.

Global Model Comparison Exercise (EMF 27)

Apr 1 2014

The EMF 27 study results are now available in a double Special Issue of Climatic Change here: EMF 27 Study Global Model Comparison Exercise. The Stanford Energy Modeling Forum Study 27 investigated the importance of individual mitigation options such as energy intensity improvements, carbon capture and storage (CCS), nuclear power, solar and wind power and bioenergy for climate mitigation.  EMF 27 was driven by a model inter-comparison of 18 energy-economy and integrated assessment models.

Shale Gas Report Released

Sep 6 2013

A new report on "Changing the Game: Emissions and Market Implications of New Natural Gas Supplies" has been issued by the EMF 26 Working Group and is available for download along with the data set containing model results.
