Economy-Wide Modeling of Net-Zero Scenarios

June 29, 2023  |  10 – 10:45 am CT

Economy-wide, net-zero analyses are providing an informed view of the potential designs for net-zero energy systems. These data-driven modeling approaches look across all sectors, all segments of the energy system, and a wide array of technologies and energy carriers. Leveraging economic optimization to balance energy supply and demand, these models shine light on potential pathways for reaching net-zero emissions across our economies.

Join GTI Energy’s Derek Wissmiller, Director of Strategic Analytics, as he speaks with Ben Haley, Co-Founder of Evolved Energy Research, to learn more about economy-wide, net-zero modeling approaches, and the illuminating insights they are generating.
