Our video game is out! Try the Energy Model 2050 for Southeast Europe and create your own scenarios
We are happy to inform you that the South East Europe 2050 Energy Model, that was created as a part of SEE SEP (South East Europe Sustainable Energy Policy) programme, has been launched today, coinciding with the beginning of climate talks in Paris.
You can view the model, presented in the form of an interactive online video game, on this link: http://www.see2050energymodel.net/.
The model shows that it is possible to have an energy future in line with EU goals, that is at the same time cost-effective. You can use the video game to play with the levers and to reach a scenario with 80% decrease of GHG emissions for every country of the region by 2050.
Countries of the region (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia) are all available in the game, along with local languages and English translation.
The model is based on My 2050 Calculator, energy model used by UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). Numerous countries of the world use the 2050 Calculator model, but this is the first one created for the whole geographical region. It is a result of two and a half year long process of collecting data, reviewing literature, consulting with important stakeholders on more than 500 meetings and modelling energy pathways for seven countries of the region, focusing especially on the transparency of data.
