Fostering a national dialogue

Contemplating the idea of establishing a national energy systems modelling network, Natural Resources Canada mandated Polytechnique Montréal to launch this Energy Modelling Initiative, with the primary goal of convening a dialogue with Canada’s electricity and energy system modelling community.

The main objectives of
the EMI-IME initiative are therefore:

1. Establish an inventory of
the Canadian Modelling Expertise

2. Convene the model-
ling community

in order to foster

3. Showcasing modelling
relevance and value

4. Planning for a sustainable
modelling community
