Energy Innovation Program – National Energy Systems Modelling Call

STATUS: Closed

The National Energy Systems Modelling Call, delivered under Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Energy Innovation Program (EIP), targets projects which quantitatively model the role of innovative technologies in achieving emissions reductions in the energy sector and its role within a net-zero emissions economy.

Why do we need energy systems modelling?

  • Important element of informed Canadian energy and climate action
  • Explore the potential role and impacts of different energy technologies
  • Develop new insights that could produce lowest-cost pathways to net zero

The National Energy Systems Modelling Call aims to support public discussion and action on clean energy and climate change by:

  • Improving societal understanding of the energy system
  • Enhanced decision-making
  • Transparency and accessibility
  • Representation of new technologies
  • Improved evidence base
