This workshop will bring together a range of modellers, policy makers, researchers and other practitioners to present recent developments in modelling, share best practices, and discuss how best to coordinate efforts between the modelling community and policymakers to address pressing questions on India’s energy and development needs. The effort will be to uncover learnings and understand how the modelling community can better serve the needs of policy makers by providing analysis in a manner that is valuable for decision making.
The workshop will start with the launch and introduction of the Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) developed by Energy Innovation LLC, World Resources Institute India and Open Climate Network. This will be followed by moderated panel discussions on 1) Sustainable Development Linkages, including air pollution 2) Demand Side Modelling, 3) Managing Uncertainty and 4) Subnational Modelling.
