With COP26 fast approaching, Dr. Katya Rhodes’ new study helps assess climate policy

As the world meets at COP26 to discuss climate action, it is important that climate-sincere decision-makers and practitioners do not engage in methodological disagreements on modelling tools to assess climate policy designs. Dr. Katya Rhodes’ new study, published in highly prestigious Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, identifies best practices for climate policy modelling to implement stringent and long-lasting climate policy decisions. The review of 21 energy-economy models in Canada discusses differences and similarities in modelling tools to help policy-makers choose the most appropriate models for their policy questions, ultimately accelerating climate action.
