CECAN Webinar – New Economic Models of the Energy Transition: Using complexity and systems approaches in energy policy appraisal

Tuesday 26th September 2023, 13:00 – 14:00 BST

Presenters: Dr. Pete Barbrook-Johnson (University of Oxford), Simon Sharpe (UNFCCC Climate Champions and WRI), Dr. Femke Nijsse (University of Exeter), and Dr. Fernanda Senra de Moura (University of Oxford)

Webinar Overview:

This webinar will present work from the Economics of Energy Innovation and System Transition (EEIST) project, a Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and Children’s Investment Fund Foundation funded project applying complexity and systems approaches in ex ante appraisal of energy and climate policy. With partners in China, India, Brazil, and the UK, they have implemented a range of policy-led case studies applying methods such as systems mapping, agent-based modelling, system dynamics, and disequilibrium macroeconomic modelling.

In this webinar, the presenters will:

  • Share some of their most pertinent examples relevant to CECAN;
  • Introduce their broader complexity-appropriate approach to appraisal, known as ‘risk-opportunity analysis’ (an expanded form of cost-benefit analysis); and
  • Attempt to draw connections across the policy cycle with the work of CECAN.
