Experience-based Exploration of Complex Energy Systems

September 25th, 2012  |  by  |  published in Case Studies, Ecological and Environmental Foresight, Energy Futures, Modeling, Simulation and Gaming, Technology Futures | Comments Off on Experience-based Exploration of Complex Energy Systems

by Andreas Ligtvoet & Emile J. L. Chappin ABSTRACT In our energy-restricted world, planners and engineers have to cope with problems of CO2 emissions and oil- and gas-shortages. Many planning activities not captured under the heading of “futures studies” share common goals like dealing with an uncertain, complex future. We focus on two novel approaches: agent-based […]
