South East Europe 2050 Energy Model – Conclusions on the Call for Evidence process

Call for Evidence Report cover_1After 18 months, more than 500 consultations with key stakeholders and relevant experts in the region and a long process of data gathering, in March 2015 we published the South East Europe 2050 energy models and related documents. This comprised of Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations that included historical trends, assumptions and ambition levels for different sectors (demand side: buildings, transport, cement, steel and aluminium and supply side: oil, gas and coal power, hydro power and other renewables) covering 7 countries of South East Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo*, Macedonia**, Montenegro and Serbia.

We published the analysis as a Call for Evidence to test with a wider range of experts and stakeholders. This examined whether the assumptions and data underpinning the model were considered to be sound and based on the best available evidence.

All the SEE SEP partners in all the countries of the region held events to promote the Call for Evidence and to invite relevant stakeholders and energy experts to comment on data. SEE Change Net also invited regional stakeholders to access the data on Call for Evidence during the Statistical Workshop on JODI Training in Energy Community Secretariat in Vienna.

The following sections of the report will describe in more detail the components of the model and discuss the various inputs received from the Call for Evidence and will highlight the decisions which have shaped the latest version of the energy models in preparation for a wider release to the public.

Next steps are: By September 15th: Consolidated Excel files and web tools for all countries published
By October 15th: Video interface for all countries published

By using these tools we hope to continue to have informed and fruitful discussions in our societies about pathways that take us towards a safer, cleaner and energy efficient energy system in South East Europe.
