KTH_Division of Energy Systems Analysis
The Division of Energy Systems Analysis (KTH-dESA) has extensive experience in energy systems analysis with an outstanding knowledge regarding the development and implementation of modelling tools such as MESSAGE, MARKAL, TIMES and LEAP. It develops the leading open source energy modelling system OSeMOSYS. Together with SEI and RAND, KTH-dESA worked on a World Bank project, where OSeMOSYS was used to investigation of the Vulnerability of African Infrastructure to Climate Change. Conducted as an integrated energy and water modelling analysis, this initiative covers around 2000 technologies in 48 yearly time slices for all 40 countries of Sub Saharan Africa in parallel to seven of the major river basins on the continent. This approach provides insights on standard adaptation options and the level of foresight that these options are implemented with. Further, KTH-dESA staff took a lead in efforts such as the IIASA Global Energy Assessment (GEA), the IEA World Energy Outlook (WEO) and Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP). KTH-dESA is coordinates the FP7 project, ‘INSIGHT_E - an interdisciplinary Think Tank on Energy’ and Horizon 2020 project, ‘REEEM’.
