LEcA - a Landscape Ecological Assessment tool for REEEM
Role of technologies in an energy efficient economy – model-based analysis of policy measures and transformation pathways to a sustainable energy system
Participants: Xi Pang and Ulla Mörtberg, EMA Research Group, KTH
Funding: EU Horizon 2020
Time period for the case study: 2016-2018
The project REEEM is a large energy systems modelling project funded by the European Commission (Horizon 2020) and led by dESA, KTH, was launched in Brussels on 24-25 February. Meeting participants included the EC Project Officer, Policy officers from DG ENER, DG RTD and the JRC as well as partners from the REEEM consortium. This project will endeavour to model potential future pathways for the European energy system, its corresponding transformations and their respective impacts.
The LEcA Lithuania case study in REEEM is performed by the EMA Research Group, KTH, in cooperation with dESA, KTH, SLU, LEI and other partners. In the case study, the LEcA Tool will be applied in a case study in Lithuania, for an ecosystem services trade-off analysis and assessment integrated with an energy assessment model. The LEcA Tool was originally developed within the PhD project.
