Call For Papers: Innovative Techniques for Quantitative Scenarios in Energy and Environmental Research
We are launching a new Thematic Issue of the Environmental Modelling & Software journal. The guest editors are:
- Celine Guivarch (CIRED, France)
- Evelina Trutnevyte (UCL Energy Institute, UK & ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
- Robert Lempert (RAND Corporation, USA)
They will also be assisted and guided by one of the Editors of EM&S, namely Alexey Voinov.
￼Quantitative scenarios form the core of the future analysis in energy, climate and environmental research. A growing number of researchers worldwide have started using innovative techniques for developing, analyzing and choosing quantitative scenarios. Some of these techniques involve a large number of scenarios. Different rationales motivate these researchers: better system understanding, uncertainty analysis, development of robust strategies, selection of a small set of scenarios, ability to link storylines with quantitative scenarios. These techniques are tools to provide both novel research insights and policy- relevant scenario exercises. In this light, this TI aims to synthesize the state-of- the-art research with innovative techniques for quantitative scenarios, gather these state-of-the-art techniques into a toolbox, identify knowledge gaps and draw avenues for future research.
