Prospective energy modelling laboratory

Our prospective energy modelling laboratory is a unique infrastructure that supports informed decision-making and helps decide on the best course of action. It avoids uncertainties in the planning and selection of energy system and sector-specificalternatives.

Through data analysis and the use of prospective models, the challenge of energy transition and decarbonisation is addressed by integrating energy, environmental and socio-economic aspects on a district, city and territory scale.

What we do in our prospective energy modelling lab

Our models and tools provide a modelling environment for the comprehensive analysis of complex energy systems. They also analyse the impacts of different policy options on specific sectors and on multi-sectoral energy systems.

  • Analysis of multi-scale energy systems.
  • Prospective energy analysis.
  • Energy, economic and environmental impact assessment.
  • Multi-criteria analysis for the prioritisation of technologies and strategies.
  • Comprehensive modelling for energy planning at a city, territory and regional level


The Prospective Energy Modelling Laboratory has the following infrastructure:

  • ENERKAD: Energy diagnosis and design of alternative geo-referenced prospective scenarios on an urban scale.
  • TEKZONE: tool for the selection of the most suitable areas for the implementation of technologies that respond to the needs arising from the energy transition and decarbonisation objectives.
  • DECARBINDUSTRY: Prospective energy modelling of intensive industries for the design of their Decarbonisation Roadmap.
  • BIDERATU: Comprehensive support the design and prioritisation of regional decarbonisation scenarios.
  • GEOPLANGRIDS: Geo-referenced tool for comprehensive and prospective energy planning considering the critical aspects of energy infrastructures

This infrastructure enables us to respond to the specific needs of Energy Planning.
