Modeling the Oil Transition: A Summary of the Proceedings of the DOE/EPA Workshop on the Economic and Environmental Implications of Global Energy Transitions

Oak Ridge National Labs put the REMI model to use in the hopes of being able to chart out the proper path to address the 5 main/great energy challenges of the 21st Century. Those challenges are: providing access to modern forms of energy for developing economies, satisfying a growing demand for energy services, making massive investments in energy R&D and deployment, ensuring the security and reliability of energy supply, and making deep reductions in carbon dioxide and all greenhouse gases. Most of the world’s energy needs are currently supplied by fossil fuels, which will need to be remedied as soon as possible.
