Years Active: 2009-2014


This project developed a new UK energy system model, UK TIMES, to replace the UK MARKAL model that has been used for research and policy analysis for a decade.

UKTM-UCL represents all UK greenhouse gas emissions for the first time. It brings together a large number of UK MARKAL updates that have been produced from UKERC and other projects. The model will be transparent and fully documented.
