Model documentation

The ADVANCE model documentation elucidates structure and assumptions of energy-economy and integrated assessment models. The aim is to better understand key differences between modelling approaches and enhance comparability and interpretability of model results. The documentation is composed of two target-group specific components: (i) the 2-page reference cards describe main features across models and are primarily targeted to decision makers (ii) the comprehensive model documentation describes the model structure, including mathematical formulae as well as reference to relevant input datasets, and is primarily targeted towards energy-land-climate modellers, technical staff in government and firms, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. The ADVANCE model documentation is hosted by the IAMC and maintained by PBL.
