Abstract

Modern energy systems are extraordinarily complex including a high number of actors (e.g. government, private investors, utilities, banks, pensions funds, consumers, NGOs) driven by different objectives and operating across very different timescales. Future energy systems in a decarbonised world are likely to be at least as complex as the current energy system, as trade-offs between reduction in CO2 emissions and other important characteristics of decarbonisation unfold and demand attention from the policy-making and academic community, as well as from a more inclusive set of stakeholders. The purpose of this report is to present the results of research aimed at identifying and prioritising evidence gaps from published literature on the impacts of the most salient energy system components of a future decarbonised system. We implemented a multistep mixed methodology to produce a prioritised list of research gaps in the literature which is both comprehensive and detailed bearing in mind the resources allocated to the project.
