Technical dialogue on good practices to implement sufficiency in existing models

With the aim of exchanging on different possibilities for integrating sufficiency in the energy system models, key experts from partner organisations and the experts from a sufficiency project in the Nordic-Baltic region, met online on 30 September 2021. To feed the discussion on sufficiency modelling, Gunnar Olesen (INFORSE) and Vidas Lekavičius (LEI) presented some insights on the project Integrating energy sufficiency into modelling of sustainable energy scenarios. LEI and REKK experts also shared some initial results on sufficiency modelling. Following the previous activities in the project, they had explored the potentials for integrating selected sufficiency indicators in their models. During the workshop, the participants exchanged on challenges and barriers of different approaches in modeling sufficiency and learnt from the experiences of previous and parallel projects.
