Sicherung der Konsistenz und Harmonisierung von Annahmen bei der kombinierten Modellierung von Ressourceninanspruchnahme und Treibhausgasemissionen
Simulation models play an important role for assessing the potential effects of policy instruments. A recent publication documents the presentations and discussions held during the two-day expert workshop entitled "Simulation of resource use and resource policy" on 7 and 8 April 2016, in Berlin, which discussed the reasons and conditions under which different simulation models yield similar or different results. The reader is available for download.
The workshop aimed at discussing the conditions under which different simulation models may yield similar results and at explaining differing results. Main focus of the discussions were criteria such as cosistency, coherence and stringency of assumptions as well as comparability of results.
