Technology catalogs in GreenREFORM

Billede af publikationens forside

This paper describes how existing technology catalogs are used in GreenREFORM.


So-called technology catalogs contain technical and economic information
about a collection of technologies. One goal of the GreenREFORM model is to
directly integrate the information contained in such catalogs in the model. The
memo highlights a series of issues related to integrating the current technol-
ogy catalogs in GreenREFORM. These issues are solvable by either constructing
new technology catalogs or supplementing the current catalogs with addi-
tional assumptions. The hope is that this memo can provide a basis for discus-
sion on the right approach moving forward.

This first section gives an overview of relevant technology catalogs and the
current integration status. In the following section, we give more details on
how each catalog is used in GreenREFORM. We conclude the note with a de-
tailed example on which additional assumptions we make in order to inte-
grate a technology catalog in the GreenREFORM model.
