Short description: This deliverable is an initial effort to document all model characteristics that are present within the PARIS REINFORCE consortium, including information regarding assumptions behind models, their geographical and socioeconomic coverage, along with detailed insights regarding methodologies, coverage of emissions, as well as mitigation and adaptation parameters.

Short description: This living document is to be used as a tentative protocol (submitted M7 and updated M18), indicating timelines and preliminary activities regarding harmonisation and interlinkages on the first round of modelling attempts, focusing on global and regional models. This deliverable also describes the other tools present within the consortia that add to the robustness of all the approaches we link together across Work Packages 3-7.

Short description: This document presents the five modelling tools that will be used in WP5 of the PARIS REINFORCE research project. Its aim is to provide a good overview of each of the documented models for a large variety of stakeholders of climate policymaking within the European Union (EU). At the same time, it has sufficient technical detail so that experts can have an accurate overview of the provided documentation.

Short description: WP5 focuses on the European low-carbon transformation projected to take place in the following decades. Five models are used with national or regional coverage within the EU-28 as well as some other European countries. The purpose of the first round of modelling is to provide a global context of where we are heading with current policies around the world, where we are supposed to be heading to comply with the Paris goals for temperature change, and what this means for the climate efforts required per country or region, including the EU.

Short description: This document presents the eight modelling tools to be used in WP7 of the PARIS REINFORCE research project. Its aim is to provide a good overview of each of the documented models for a large variety of stakeholders of climate policymaking at the global level.

Short description: WP7 focuses on global stocktaking of climate efforts, and six global models will be used for a series of extensive model inter-comparisons. The purpose of the first round of global modelling is to provide a global context of where we are heading with current policies and where we are supposed to be heading to comply with the Paris goals for temperature change. Therefore, the global models will be run in a coordinated way, providing the best scientific basis for a model inter-comparison exercise.

Short description: We set out to understand the needs of policymakers and stakeholders, as reflected in our stakeholder engagement and knowledge co-creation processes, then review the extent to which these have been addressed in the recent modelling literature following the Paris Agreement, before examining how our modelling armoury can respond to these needs.

Short description: This report shows that the first global model inter-comparison, using a mix of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE), macro-econometric, bottom-up energy system and partial equilibrium models results in a broad range of emissions futures under “reference” scenarios, which account for current policy efforts and current Paris pledge targets. This range is produced despite of a high degree of modelling input and scenario design harmonisation, highlighting the importance of underlying model structure in determining the results.
