Energy models are essential for the development of national or regional deep decarbonization pathways (DDPs), providing the necessary analytical framework to systematically explore the system transitions that are required. However, this is challenging due to the long time horizon, the numerous data requirements and the need for transparent, credible approaches that can provide insights into complex transitions. This article explores how this challenge has been met to date, based on a review of… 
The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP): insights and emerging issues
International climate policy discussions have fundamentally changed since the fifteenth Conference of the Parties (COP 15) in Copenhagen. Before, the debate was organized around short-term,
A pathway design framework for national low greenhouse gas emission development strategies
The Paris Agreement introduces long-term strategies as an instrument to inform progressively more ambitious emission reduction objectives, while holding development goals paramount in the context of
Defining deep decarbonization pathways for Switzerland: an economic evaluation
ABSTRACT This article simulates deep decarbonization pathways for a small open economy that lacks the usual avenues for large CO2 reductions – heavy industry and power generation. A computable
Carbon prices in national deep decarbonization pathways Insights from the Deep Decarbonization pathways Project (DDPP)

The DDPP approach is explicitly and inherently consistent with the bottom-up framing of climate talks as defined by the Paris Agreement, that is to say grounded in national selfdetermination of
Modelling net-zero emissions energy systems requires a change in approach
ABSTRACT Energy modelling can assist national decision makers in determining strategies that achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, three key challenges for the modelling community
Transition pathways for North Africa to meet its (intended) nationally determined contributions ((I)NDCs) under the Paris Agreement: a model-based assessment
ABSTRACT This study applies a scenario-based analysis to assess the sustainability of energy transitions of the North African economies under the Paris Agreement, by evaluating the specific pace of
Scenarios for different ‘Future Indias’: sharpening energy and climate modelling tools
ABSTRACT India is crucial to the future of the global energy system, and hence to efforts to mitigate climate change. However, projecting India’s energy future is challenging because of a number of
