For those interested in modeling, the course discusses the development
of reference and low carbon scenarios until 2030 and beyond, the stakeholders that need to be involved and the data that is required to develop credible projections
. A downloadable copy of the EFFECT model (Energy Forecasting Framework and Emissions Consensus Tool), developed initially for low carbon modeling work in India and used in a number of other countries since, is provided.
