Students will learn how to model a baseline and several energy transition scenarios for the electricity sector and a selected end-use sector of a case study country using the LEAP software. The course consists of:

  • ·       Introduction into the LEAP modelling software,
  • ·       Building a tree for energy system modeling and filling out the LEAP structure with country relevant data, building up a base year structure,
  • ·       Scenario development, assumptions regarding scenario drivers, definition of scenario types, definition of policies and measures, and their costs,
  • ·       Filling out the LEAP structure with country relevant data to built baseline and advanced scenarios,
  • ·       Interpretation of the results and connecting them to the recent policy developments.
