2017-09-27 2017-09-28 Europe/Budapest Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) for municipal energy sector planning LEAP is an integrated, scenario-based modelling tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment. It can be used to track energy consumption, production and resource extraction in all sectors of an economy, as well as to account for both energy sector and non-energy sector greenhouse gas (GHG) emission sources and sinks. Charles Heaps, Senior Scientist at SEI-US and developer of LEAP, will present how the municipal energy sector planning can benefit from the range of possibilities LEAP can bring, being a flexible and easy-to-use tool for diverse levels of user-expertise and from which models of different energy systems can be created. In addition to tracking GHGs, LEAP can also be used to analyse emissions of local and regional air pollutants, and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) making it well-suited to studies of the climate co-benefits of local air pollution reduction. The webinar will be held in English language, from 15:00 to 16:00 CET. Participation is for free and to register, please write an e-mail to tmorante@rec.org.
