Abstract

This short report describes the methodology followed to select a group of energy system components for further assessment in the first phase of SPLiCE. As the next step we will investigate the existence of significant evidence gaps in relation to direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of the energy system components identified in this stage. The DECC calculator was used as the starting point for the selection of the energy system components which were presented to the stakeholders. The criteria and related scoring system was decided to reflect the aim of Worksteam1 in SPLiCE, i.e. investigate the existence of significant evidence gaps in relation to direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of a decarbonised energy system. After circulating a web survey usable responses from about 50 stakeholders were obtained. Based on our interpretation of the data we propose that as a next step we investigate significant evidence gaps in relation to direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of the following energy system components.
