Abstract

This paper presents a methodology for the development of normative energy scenarios. The focus is on cross-sectoral transformation pathways towards a completely renewable energy supply. By using the REMix energy model, which is temporal and spatially highly resolved, the least-cost power supply structure is assessed. The model also calculates additional storage and grid capacity necessary for the target year 2050. By analyzing the interactions of different technologies and sectors we provide a basis for the backcasting of a transformation pathway. This is carried out by a simulation model within the MESAP-PlaNet environment, covering the heat, transport & power sectors. We present and compare feasible transformation pathways towards a 100% renewable energy supply for two case studies, the Canary Islands and Brazil.
