The European Forum for Energy and Climate Transition (EFECT) brings together European expertise in energy and climate modelling. EFECT was established in 2021 and our members include leading European universities and research institutions working in energy and climate modelling, as well as relevant stakeholders.
EFECT aims to contribute to modelling exercises with the goal of better understanding the ground-breaking energy and climate transition in Europe. We want to explore different pathways for the transition, taking into account its multiple dimensions, such as technological, environmental, economic, social, political, ethical, etc. By contributing to model development and enhancement of analysis tools at national, regional and European level, EFECT will provide support to European energy and climate policy analysis, as well as corporate decision making. Key features of EFECT are the focus on open and transparent modelling processes and the development of tools open for use by all stakeholders. This will facilitate increased interaction between modellers and stakeholder groups and contribute to a more robust energy and climate modelling capacity in Europe.
