General model of demand and supply of relevant materials for energy and transportation technologies

This deliverable comprises the description of the general module of demand and supply of relevant materials for energy and transportation technologies and its implementation in the 36 models (World, 7 world regions and EU-28). It summarises the work carried out in Task 7.1. Modelling of demand and supply of relevant materials for energy and transportation technologies.

Review of information on IAMs.

This deliverable comprises the review of the information about IAMs, their features and functionalities and additional (project-) relevant information. This report will summarize the results of Task 3.1 and will be available for download on the project website.

Water use module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the water-use sub-module and its implementation in the 36 models (World, 7 world regions and EU-28). It summarises the work carried out in ""Task 6.2. Development of a water module""."

Labour market sub-module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the labour market sub-module. A new labour module including employment, unemployment, skills and gender perspectives will be included in LOCOMOTION. These variables will dynamically influence the model, regarding its relationship with salaries and, as a result, households’ consumption. The full integration within the whole model, will allow the assessment of the energy and environmental implications of changes in the structure of wages or in the working conditions. This deliverable summarises the work carried out in ""Task 4.5. A new Labour sub-module"". "

Module of energy resources availability

"This deliverable comprises the description of the module of energy resources and its implementation in the 36 models (World, 7 world regions and EU-28). It summariese the work carried out in ""Task 7.2. Modelling of energy resources availability""."

International trade sub-module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the international trade sub-module. LOCOMOTION will improve international trade by a more specific regional disaggregation stated in WP2. Since intermediate exports and imports rely upon fixed technical coefficients, endogenous evolution of technical coefficients will allow assessing different trade openness scenarios. Moreover, we will estimate Armington elasticities using information from the latest release of WIOD. It summarises the work carried out in ""Task 4.6. Upgrade international trade modelling and re-estimation with latest data"". "

Review of Policy options to drive societies towards sustainability.

"This deliverable comprises the description of an extensive review of the state-of-the art of technical and non-technical policy measures to drive societies towards sustainability will be performed. The literature review will include policy measures being applied/proposed in countries/regions (emphasis in EU members), applied in models (e.g. WORLD6, GCAM, IMAGE, MESSAGE) (cooperation with WP3), and those not currently applied neither in the models nor in the realpolitik (scientific literature review). This deliverable summarises the work carried out in ""Task 8.1. Review of policy measures""."

Map of relevant fora for the project at EU and MS level.

Identification of the main stakeholders to co-involve and forums in which the project could be disseminated and communicated. This deliverable summarises Task 10.1 Identification of main stakeholders, communication channels and forums linked to energy, climate and economic transition.

Models of Energy technologies

"This deliverable comprises the description of the: Modelling of energy technologies infrastructure of production and transportation. Learning technological curves. Modelling of final energy fuels. Modelling of the allocation of energy. It summarises the work carried out in ""Task 7.3. Modelling of energy technologies""."

Review of social and demographic indicators/impacts of energy transitions.

"This deliverable comprises the description of the current practices in the use of social and demographic indicators to build IAMs. It summarises ""Task 5.1 Review of social and demographic indicators and impacts of energy transitions""."

Government sub-module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the link of the main macroeconomic magnitudes of the government (output, intermediate consumption, wages, government consumption, investment, etc.) to the “General government expenditure by function”. It includes the work made in the ""Task 4.3. A new Government sub-module by function”. "

Land-use module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the land-use sub-module and its implementation in the 36 models (World, 7 world regions and EU-28). This deliverable summarises the work carried out in ""Task 6.1. Development of a land-use module""."

Financial sub-module

"This deliverable comprises the description of the financial sub-module. MEDEAS upgrading will include a financial module, which will be able to capture financial flows in a consistent way. By integrating a financial module, LOCOMOTION will benefit from a more realistic view of the economy’s behaviour, capturing potential capabilities to invest and also systemic instabilities. Stock-Flow Consistent (SFC) methodology will be applied, which approach is to account consistently for all monetary flows between agents and sectors across the economy (households, financial and non-financial corporations, and government). Therefore, the stock-flow and feedback-rich structure of system dynamics naturally matches with SFC features. This deliverable summarises the work carried out in ""Task 4.4. A new Financial sub-module"". "

Dissemination and Communication Plan.

"This deliverable comprises the yearly updated Dissemination and communication plan (months 12, 24, 36 and 45). It includes the work carried out in ""Task 10.2 Development of project communication and dissemination plan""."

Report of the common modeling framework

"This deliverable comprises the development of the common modelling framework to the different modules composing the model, with links between modules, bridge variables, and methodological consistency. It summarises the work carried out in ""Task 9.1. Module coordination and integration""."

Data Management Plan

"This includes discussing and defining the data requirements considering each module's structure and needs, developing guidelines for naming, metadata and quality assessment, as well as determining how to approve and harmonize the collected data for use in the model and for publishing representatives from the groups in charge of model development. It also includes a description of the security measures that will be implemented to prevent unauthorised access to personal data or the equipment used for processing must be included in the Data Management Plan and a relevant confirmation will be submitted as a deliverable. The Data Management Plan (DMP) will further include an explicit confirmation that the data used in the project is publicly available and can be freely used for the purposes of the project. This deliverable summarises the work carried out in ""Task 2.1 Development of Data Management Plan"". "
