Please save the date for an innovative 4th annual conference with keynote speaker John Loughhead Chief Scientific Adviser at Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.


  • The past, retrospective analysis: a look back at over a decade of energy decarbonisation modelling, funded by RCUK and other bodies’ research investments, and impacting successive UK policy positions. 
  • The present, current analysis: a set of presentations on state-of-the-art on the implementation of the energy trilemma (decarbonisation, security, equity).
  • The future, new approaches: innovative sessions including focus groups and discussion sessions on developing and communicating the new insights in terms of technology, society, infrastructures and resources  needed by decision makers to achieve the energy systems transition challenge over the next decades.


100-120 attendees consisting of UK and international participants. Previous conferences have been attended by a diverse mix of experts from government, think-tanks, consultancy, academia, industry and consumers of model outputs. 

The wholeSEM conference has established itself as a major UK and international event and we attract a very high calibre of attendees from many major modelling teams.

The conferences are a chance to bring the modelling community together and showcase some of the excellent work that has been done over the year. 

PhD Students

PhD students are also invited participate in a poster competition and deliver insights from their work. If you are a PhD student doing research into energy models please find more information and how to apply to present at the conference.
