This image shows a mock-up the Decision Support Tool, which will be the outcome of IIASA’s work on the recharge.green project.  The menu on the left allows the used to select scenarios or desired output dimensions (power, emissions, costs).

The recharge.green project is coming to a close, and with that, IIASA researchers are now working to put together all the pieces they have been modeling over the past two years. What comes out of the model in the end will be a set of around 150 scenarios, which – in their combinations – show […]
