For a government office elaborating its national energy policy: Enerdata was selected to create the BAU national forecasting scenario as basis for BAU CO2 emissions and the corresponding Marginal Abatement Cost Curves to predict and suggest policy measures for reducing future CO2 emissions. Enerdata provided forecasts and detailed reports covering a range of scenarios based on the in-house MACCs model. As a result, the client was gifted a clear platform to assess possible future CO2 emissions and formulate strategic, cost-related abatement decisions.
