Endogenous Technological Progress scenarios with the POLES model

The improved under SAPIENT version of the POLES model has made feasible the construction of endogenous technological progress scenarios. The IEPE team has used the SAPEX scenario (SAPIENT-exogenous scenario involving exogenous forecasts on technology development) as a benchmark for the assessment of the SAPEN (Sapient endogenous) scenario. In the latter case exogenous hypotheses have been replaced by a description of technology cost dynamics that endogenises technological change in the new and renewable technologies and in the electricity modules of the POLES model.
