Bringing the Tools to Support Canada's Energy Transition
Modelling projects – 1st edition
Following the call for projects launched in July 2019, over 40 submissions with excellent quality from a broad range of Canadian energy system modellers have been received, demonstrating the geographical and sectoral diversity of the community. Although all the projects proposed interesting potential contributions to the objectives of the Initiative, the selection committee had to choose 10 of them. To this list are added 3 projects that are either not eligible for funding or offered on a voluntary basis for synthesis.
You are a modeller and your work can contribute to the design of a sustainable modelling community? We are interested in getting to know it! Send us a project report to:
