ECEMF is a Horizon 2020 funded project. The aim of the project is to establish a European focal-point – the forum - for energy and climate researchers and policy makers to tackle the key challenge of our time – how to achieve climate neutrality.
The ECEMF consortium is led by KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and consists of 15 partners in total from 9 countries.
Partners include CMCC, IIASA, PIK, TU Wien, e-think, TNO, Fraunhofer ISI, E3M, PBL, Artelys, Comillas, TU Delft, University of Melbourne and IOS-PIB.
ECEMF is a long-term, open and welcoming focal-point for researchers and policy makers with unparalleled international connections to the EMF, JMIP, IAMC and IPCC. Through extensive links to ongoing H2020 projects, research and policy communities & networks ECEMF will act as a crucial international node for European energy and climate research.
ECEMF will operate the first inclusive and open full-scale model comparison exercise on achieving climate neutrality in Europe, including from the outset over 20 models and 15 top research groups, to produce a coherent and relevant evidence-base for energy and climate policy impact assessment.
ECEMF’s programme of events and novel IT-based communications channel will enable researchers to identify and co-develop the most pressing policy-relevant research questions with a range of European and national stakeholders
ECEMF’s evidence-base will support the development of policy-relevant insights which will be communicated to and discussed with the key decision makers via a novel channels including interactive web-embeddable visualisation blocks, policy briefs, workshops and high-profile events.
ECEMF will advance the state-of-the-art of energy and climate modelling by enabling sharing of: input data using open standards, methods for model comparison building on the vast experience of the consortium, scientific software tools such as the IIASA scenario explorer and hands-on training for researchers.
