VersionDescriptionChanges
TIMER 3.0.1 Model version as used for the implementation of the SSP scenarios

Model component: Energy supply
Bio-energy: new bio-energy crop (grassy biomass) has been added and more detailed modeled to derive the potential for residues.

Model component: Energy conversion
The electric power model has been significantly improved to better describe the penetration of intermittent technologies vis-à-vis reliability and load constraints.

Model component: Energy conversion
Concentrated solar power and wind power in coastal seas have been added as additional technologies.

Model component: Energy demand
The transport model has been updated with new information on the performance of different technologies.

Model component: Energy demand
The model describing demand for non-energy use of fossil fuels and biomass has been improved.

Model component: Emissions
The model has been recalibrated using information of EDGAR database and the GAINS database
