Evaluation of energy-climate trajectories 2030-2050 for the European Commission

14 Oct 2022

Enerdata has been selected by the DG CLIMA of the European Commission (EC), in consortium with Artelys (leader), Engie Impact and E4SMA, to conduct a multi-model analysis of European energy systems to 2050.

The aim of the project is to evaluate energy-climate trajectories in the EU beyond 2030, to understand convergence or divergence of sectoral findings across three different partial equilibrium model (namely POLES-Enerdata, TIMES-EU and the AMADEUS-METIS model cluster).

The work will involve defining contrasted scenarios with a set of harmonised assumptions, in order to compare their respective results.

Our experts in prospective energy modelling will work on the project by leveraging our in-house POLES-Enerdata model to produce the scenarios.

The project was kicked-off in Brussels in September 2022 and will span until the summer of 2023.

The new European project Odyssee-Mure has been launched this month and will last until 2025. The Odyssee database is coordinated by Enerdata for 20 years. New features are implemented for this new project.

The European Union selected Enerdata to be part of a project to develop a programme named “Hydrogen Skills Strategy” to support the fast expansion as well as the continuous evolution of hydrogen industry, throughout the value chain.

We have added four new employees to our staff in the past few months.

Here is a short presentation in their own words:

French reindustrialisation: definition of a gas consumption trajectory for GRTgaz

19 Jul 2022

Enerdata supported GRTgaz in the definition of a gas consumption trajectory for the French industrial activity in the context of reindustrialisation. To this end, Enerdata has defined activity trajectories consistent with a relocation for different sectors of French industry by analysing past trajectories and existing forecasting exercises.

The sectors concerned by this relocation are those considered as strategic by the French government, with a high added value, or allowing to reduce the carbon footprint of products.

This work has enabled Enerdata to apply its complete expertise on the evolution of energy demand in the industrial sector.

EnerFuture, our service providing long-term energy projections (by energy source, country and sector) at global and country levels, has just been updated. New developments have enhanced the coverage of our projections, refined some of our techno-economic approaches, and included the major impacts of recent game changers (Covid-19, Ukrainian crisis, new NDCs) in the three Enerdata scenarios.

Net-Zero Emissions 2050 scenario for the Tunisian energy sector

28 Jun 2022

Enerdata supports the Tunisian National Agency for Energy Conservation (ANME)with the assistance of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the implementation of a net-zero emissions scenario by 2050.

Enerdata updates the two existing scenarios of the National Low-Carbon Strategy (SNBC): the business as usual (BAU) one and the low-carbon (LC) one. The project aims to create also a more ambitious pathway toward net-zero emissions by 2050.Enerdata is in charge of benchmarking the successful international strategies, defining hypothesis with the Tunisian stakeholders, and modeling the energy demand and GHG emissions for six sectors, including the energy industry.

Enerdata takes advantage of the bottom-up EnerMED model which simulates long-term sectoral energy demand, energy balances, and GHG balances. The scenarios’ results are also assessed according to the sustainable development goals (SDG) to compare their impacts in terms of energy vulnerability, climate change mitigation, social and economic concerns.

This project is part of the new Tunisian SNBC in the energy sector and the results will be shared at the international level during COP27 of Charm el-Cheikh.

Implementation of energy transition scenarios for the DGEC

10 May 2022

Enerdata supports the Directorate General for Energy and Climate (DGEC) of the Ministry of Ecological Transition ("MTE") in the implementation of energy transition scenarios: one scenario "with existing measures" (AME) and another one "with additional measures" (AMS).

Enerdata contributes to the development and the consistency check of these scenarios by producing prospective energy balances as well as monitoring indicators. Enerdata is also in charge of modelling the industrial sector with the EnerMED model.  

This work is part of an integrated forecasting exercise conducted for several years by the DGEC covering the fields of energy, raw materials, climate (greenhouse gas emissions) and air (atmospheric pollutants).

The new AME and AMS 2023 scenarios will be used by the DGEC to feed the reflections on the revision of the French Energy and Climate strategy (SFEC), via the first Energy and Climate Programming Law (LPEC), the updating of the National Low Carbon Strategy (SNBC3) and the Multiannual Energy Programming (PPE) by 2024. At the international level, the prospective exercise will serve France's reporting requirements to the European institutions and the United Nations.

Following studies run in 2018 and 2020, Enerdata has been selected by the Directorate General Energy of the European Commission to perform the study on energy prices and costs to understand the impacts of the current energy prices surge on European households and industry’s costs.

The objective of this study is to support ADEME in preparing and conducting a participatory prospective exercise on the Burgundy-Franche Comté region. The objective is to develop a territorial project, to organise a sustainable and optimised management of agricultural, forestry and woodland biomass.

To celebrate Enerdata’s 30th anniversary, we have prepared an exceptional event. We invited international renowned experts in energy and climate domains to talk about the evolutions since 1990, and the challenges we will face until 2050.

Energy impact evaluation of policies and measures in Wallonia

8 Mar 2022

Enerdata supports the Public Service of Wallonia (Belgium region) in consortium with ICEDD for the evaluation of policies and measures on energy impact to comply with the reporting of Articles 5 and 7 of the European Energy Efficiency Directive. Under Article 7 of the EED, each member state should achieve at least 1.5% energy savings of their energy sales on average over 2014-2020. Therefore, the 2022 reporting is key to assess whether the objective has been achieved. Through Article 5, members states shall encourage public bodies to renovate 3% of the total floor area of their buildings, or to adopt alternative measures which will deliver the same amount of energy savings (case of Belgium).

New support for ADEME and Medener network

28 Feb 2022

In 2022 Enerdata renews its support for Ademe and seven members of the Medener network (Mediterranean association of national agencies for energy management) as part of the MeetMED II project: Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine. The national agencies are supported by Enerdata in updating their data and calculating their energy indicators. Beyond the consulting mission, Enerdata provides energy efficiency workshops and training sessions on indicators and forecasting. The project aims to set up an energy efficiency database with comparisons of indicators at the Mediterranean countries‘ level.

Grenoble Alpes Métropole has selected Enerdata to support the definition of its decarbonisation strategy until January 2023 to model the impacts of the policies resulting from the convention's reflections and those of the elected officials, and to define coherent options with a goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.

Study on energy prices projections for the French national railway company, SNCF

3 Dec 2021

Together with its partners Compass Lexecon and Solagro, Enerdata has been developing energy prices projections up to 2050 to support SNCF in defining its decarbonisation strategy.

This study covers all main energies but also new key drivers for projections: oil products, natural gas, bioenergy, electricity and hydrogen.

The study covers global oil and gas markets, European power market and France for bioenergy.

It also focuses on energy prices  for end-users, with a breakdown of all components including taxation. One important outcome is that, in a context of strong decarbonisation, the fuel price increase for the end-users will be mainly due to the CO2 tax. Currently, this tax is difficult to forecast because the measure is lacking of social acceptance: in France, the CO2 tax level has been frozen since the yellow safety vests demonstrations.

In addition to the delivery of quantitative energy prices projections, Enerdata has set up workshops on energy and climate prospective and energy markets to provide SNCF with key insights to shape its decarbonisation strategy.

Evaluating clean energy transition in Sahel countries until 2030

20 Apr 2021

The scenario evaluation study will support the International Energy Agency in developing two energy and emissions scenarios for the Sahel region until 2030. The study will focus on Senegal and the G5 Sahel (Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Chad), countries facing numerous socioeconomic challenges, including very limited access to energy, and in particular electricity, despite large resources for clean energy. Two scenarios will be provided: a Stated Policies Scenario and a Sustainable Development Scenario, which Enerdata will prepare and analyse for the IEA. The scenario comparison will allow decision-makers to assess which additional policies could contribute to the countries’ economic development while ensuring a wider access to clean energy in the Sahel region.

Enerdata will be using its EnerNEO model in this study, which will feed into a dedicated report and event of the IEA on clean energy transitions in Sahel countries later this year.

This year is cause for celebration at Enerdata, as we can look back at 30 years of energy insights. And look forward to many more years of analysis and consulting on energy and climate issues!

To celebrate this milestone in a social-distancing approved manner, the whole team headed to the mountains surrounding our headquarters for a half-day of fun (and competition) in the snow.

This article by Enerdata senior energy modelling expert Sylvain Cail and emeritus CNRS energy transition researcher Patrick Criqui aims to clarify the magnitude of the climate challenge we face globally and the role that the four largest greenhouse gas emitters – China, the U.S.A., the European Union and India – could potentially play, if they decided on a “deep collaboration”. The paper focuses on the abatement of CO2 emissions, which represent two thirds of total GHG emissions.

Monitoring and evaluation of Tunisia's nationally determined contribution (NDC)

2 Mar 2021

Enerdata continues its collaboration with the National Agency for Energy Management (ANME) of Tunisia with a new project on the follow-up of the Tunisian nationally determined contribution (NDC).

More specifically, this project, financed by the German development agency GIZ, should make it possible to develop a methodology for monitoring and evaluating NDC implementation in the energy sector in Tunisia, in accordance with the requirements of the Paris Agreement. The methodology will then be applied to measure the progress made in the energy sector over the period 2015-2020. The mission should also make it possible to recommend the necessary improvements to the EnerInfo database of ANME to implement this methodology, and thus improve the transparency of accounting for greenhouse gases emissions of the NDC in the energy sector.

Finally, the project includes a capacity building component for stakeholders on the different aspects of the proposed methodology.

Deep decarbonisation scenarios and MAC curves for BEIS (UK)

28 Jan 2021

Electricity Demand and Load Curves in New Caledonia - Enercal

13 Nov 2018

Enerdata is working with ENERCAL – the TSO (transmission system operator) in New Caledonia – to elaborate electricity demand forecasts through 2040, as well as associated load curves.

As a remote island territory, New Caledonia is not interconnected with other electricity grids, which means the power system manager faces significant challenges. Electricity demand is growing steadily, and three-quarters of demand currently comes from industry.

ENERCAL will use the results of the Enerdata study to create a Transmission Network Development Plan for New Caledonia and to elaborate the basis of the next multiyear investment plan.

EnerNEO development for Pakistan’s NDCs moves forward

2 Oct 2018

We are currently enhancing our EnerNEO model, which the Government of Pakistan will use to develop its climate policy and define its NDCs.

The current work is in partnership with the German Society for International Cooperation (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, or GIZ).
