Conventional energy production based on fossil fuels causes emissions that contribute to global warming. Accurate energy system models are required for a cost-optimal transition to a zero-emission energy system, which is an endeavor that requires a methodical modeling of cost reductions due to technological learning effects. In this review, we summarize common methodologies for modeling technological learning and associated cost reductions via learning curves. This is followed by a literature…

Learning and cost reductions for generating technologies in the national energy modeling system (NEMS)

This report describes how Learning-by-Doing is implemented endogenously in the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) for generating plants, and organizes the relevant information from the NEMS documentation, source code, input files, and output files, in order to make the model's logic more accessible.
