This workshop will introduce the E3ME-FTT-GENIE integrated assessment model (IAM) for climate policy assessment. This model is extensively used by the European Commission and other governments to assess the macroeconomic impacts of low-carbon energy. The core model simulates the diffusion of low-carbon technologies in various energy-intensive sectors such as power generation, heat, transport and industry. The model then runs climate and carbon cycle simulations to determine the likelihood of meeting targets and predict various climate impacts (sea level rise, ocean pH, extreme events, etc).

Food will be provided! RSVP required.

This event is co-sponsored by the Duke University Energy Initiative's Energy Research Seminar Series, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, and Risk@Duke.

Note: Jean-Francois Mercure is also presenting a lecture, "A Carbon Bubble, Macroeconomic Impacts, and Future Fossil Fuel Assets," on Feb. 22.
