This document presents the five modelling tools that will be used in WP5 of the PARIS REINFORCE research project. Its aim is to provide a good overview of each of the documented models for a large variety of stakeholders of climate policymaking within the European Union (EU). At the same time, it has sufficient technical detail so that experts can have an accurate overview of the provided documentation.

Date: May 2020
Short description:

WP5 focuses on the European low-carbon transformation projected to take place in the following decades. Five models are used with national or regional coverage within the EU-28 as well as some other European countries. The purpose of the first round of modelling is to provide a global context of where we are heading with current policies around the world, where we are supposed to be heading to comply with the Paris goals for temperature change, and what this means for the climate efforts required per country or region, including the EU.

Date: September 2019
Short description:

This document describes in detail the key attributes of the models that will be used in PARIS REINFORCE to develop and examine sustainable development and decarbonisation pathways for major and less emitting countries and regions outside of Europe. These regions include the USA, Canada, Mexico, China, India, Japan, Brazil, and the Central Asian Caspian region.

Date: May 2020
Short description:

PARIS REINFORCE will utilise a range of energy and integrated assessments models, as well as sectoral models, to explore in depth the system transformations that can help achieve the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal of limiting global warming rise to “well below 2oC” and “pursuing efforts towards 1.5oC”.

Short description:

This document presents the eight modelling tools to be used in WP7 of the PARIS REINFORCE research project. Its aim is to provide a good overview of each of the documented models for a large variety of stakeholders of climate policymaking at the global level.

Date: May 2020
Short description:

WP7 focuses on global stocktaking of climate efforts, and six global models will be used for a series of extensive model inter-comparisons. The purpose of the first round of global modelling is to provide a global context of where we are heading with current policies and where we are supposed to be heading to comply with the Paris goals for temperature change. Therefore, the global models will be run in a coordinated way, providing the best scientific basis for a model inter-comparison exercise.

Date: July 2020
Short description:

We set out to understand the needs of policymakers and stakeholders, as reflected in our stakeholder engagement and knowledge co-creation processes, then review the extent to which these have been addressed in the recent modelling literature following the Paris Agreement, before examining how our modelling armoury can respond to these needs.

Date: November 2020
Short description:

This report shows that the first global model inter-comparison, using a mix of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE), macro-econometric, bottom-up energy system and partial equilibrium models results in a broad range of emissions futures under “reference” scenarios, which account for current policy efforts and current Paris pledge targets. This range is produced despite of a high degree of modelling input and scenario design harmonisation, highlighting the importance of underlying model structure in determining the results.
