Models, Tools & Data

The major models, research tools, and databases produced by IIASA are listed below. Many of the results and methodologies of these resources are documented in refereed scientific literature available in IIASA's Publication Catalog.

Energy & Climate Change

AMPERE Scenario database

The AMPERE database, operated by IIASA for the AMPERE consortium, hosts the model results for work packages 2, 3, and 5, as well as the results from the model diagnostics project. AMPERE scenario data were used in a series of research papers, which were published in a special issue of Technological Forecasting and Social Change as well as other journals. In addition, the results were used in the 5th Assessment Report of Working Group III of the IPCC. More

BeWhere

A model that optimizes the size, location, and technology of bioenergy production plants from the regional to the European level. More

Energy Multi-Criteria Analysis Tool

An interactive Web-based scenario analysis tool which allows the concurrent assessment of multiple energy objectives More

Energy Access Interactive Tool

An interactive Web-based scenario analysis tool which allows the assessment of multiple energy access policies More

Energy and Carbon Emissions Inventories Database

A database of the major global inventories of energy use and carbon emissions More

The GAINS Model

A scientific tool to combat air pollution and climate change simultaneously More

Greenhouse Gas Initiative Scenario Database

A database of greenhouse gas emission mitigation scenarios More

Global Energy Assessment Scenario Database

The Global Energy Assessment (GEA) Scenario database documents results and assumptions of the GEA energy transformation pathways that underpin the GEA. The database serves as a central data repository for the dissemination of GEA scenario information. More

IPCC AR5 Scenarios Database

The IPCC AR5 Scenarios Database documents the long-term scenarios as reviewed in the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of Working Group III of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). More

LIMITS Scenario Database

The LIMITS Scenario database, operated by IIASA for the LIMITS consortium, hosts the results of the LIMITS modeling comparison exercise. The LIMITS project aims at advancing the understanding of the implementation of climate policies consistent with 2 degree Celsius. The main objective of the project is to provide an assessment of the emissions reductions strategies at the level of the world and the major global economies. More

LSM2

A software tool to estimate the parameters of technological growth and substitution processes More

MESSAGE

A modeling framework for medium- to long-term energy system planning, energy policy analysis, and scenario development More

Primary, Final and Useful Energy Database (PFUDB)

A historical database of energy use by country or region, energy level, sector, energy carrier, and end-use type. More

Representative Concentration Pathways Database

A database with scenarios from the integrated assessment community to expedite climate change assessments More

Scaling Dynamics of Energy Technologies

The SD-ET analysis provides a novel methodological framework of using observed historical patterns of technological change to test the plausibility of future scenarios of technological change to meet climate change mitigation goals. More
