This year’s World Resources Forum (WRF 2017) will take place in Geneva, October 24-25, 2017. The overall topic of the conference is “Accelerating the Resource Revolution”. Discussions will tackle the ideas and conditions behind this revolution, as well as potential obstacles and opportunities that it will bring for governments, businesses, academia and the civil society. The conference will gather key players from around the globe and present the best solutions and innovations to boost resource efficiency worldwide. How to accelerate this transition and how to manage, train and communicate about it will be the focus of the WRF 2017.

MEDEAS project will proudly be part of this important event with a workshop on “Modeling the transition toward a low carbon emissions energy system: the MEDEAS EU project”.

This workshop will report the current results of the project stressing the requirement to keep Europe on track of the decarbonization process to attain the objectives of the Paris agreement and correlating it with resources depletion. The discussion will focus on the global version of the model produced in the project with references to the feedbacks between energy sources and the economy as well as the key points for energy transition. Moreover, the open-source nature of MEDEAS model and the need to share and reproduce information in energy models will be also addressed.
