Development of the HU-TIMES model

Uploaded: 9 of December, 2019

The main objective of the project is to elaborate a country-specific modelling system for Hungary based on the TIMES modelling system which will serve as a basis for the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) of Hungary, fulfilling EU reporting requirements.
The model covers the energy sector of Hungary, including the energy transformation sectors, energy related processes of the industrial sectors, transport and building related energy services of households and the tertiary sectors. The projections cover the period until 2050, also elaborating milestones for 2030 which are in line with 2050 ambitions.
The TIMES model can serve as a central part of the overall national energy and climate modelling system, that could be linked to other models and estimations, e.g. related to the LULUC sector, agriculture etc.
