UCCRI Early Career Researcher Programme

Speaker: Dr Pablo Salas (Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge)

The decarbonisation of the power sector is a crucial step towards creating a low-carbon society, to avoid dangerous and irreversible climate change. The Design and implementation of successful decarbonisation policies requires the understanding of the interactions between complex phenomena such as availability of energy resources, renewable energy investment decisions and technology diffusion. In this session, Dr Salas will demonstrate FTT:Power, a model of the global power sector created at Cambridge, to analyse the impact of decarbonisation policies in different world regions. The session is aimed to be an introductory hand-on experience in modelling. No previous experience or knowledge is required. It will take place in the computing lab of the geography department. An example of FTT:Power in use can be found at:

Lunch included.
