Application type: 4. Model comparison
Role of IMAGE framework: IMAGE was one of the IAMs in this multi-model project.
Summary: The FP7 research project LIMITS examined a series of critical questions which are especially relevant for climate policy making:
  • What is the economic, technical and political feasibility of attaining stringent climate policies?
  • How can we jump start investments and innovation into clean energy technologies?
  • What is the role of policies in promoting mitigation and adaptation, recognizing the diversity of regional and national interests?
  • What is the role of technologies and their advancements to meet the change in energy infrastructure?

By using state-of-the-art methodological instruments to assess climate policies, LIMITS aims at carrying out a rigorous assessment of what a stringent climate policy entails, and what is needed to overcome major impediments.
