ZEP's model shows the lowest-cost route to decarbonising European power

  • Publisher: ZEP
  • Issued: 14/11/2014

In order to identify how low-carbon technologies can reduce European power emissions most cost-effectively in the horizon to 2050, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) has developed a model based on an existing model from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and linked it to the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM).

ZEP’s model is designed to select the lowest-cost investments to meet expected electricity demand, while replacing plants that exceed a defined lifetime – country by country. It is unique in that it not only takes into account optimised operating costs hour-by-hour, but also has a dispatch model for renewable power based on capacity factors and historic weather data.
