Abstract This paper provides an overview of ETI’s Energy System Modelling Environment (ESME). The first objective of this paper is to describe, in general terms, what the tool does and what it isused for. This is intended to act as background reference material for anyone who has seen ESME cited in a presentation or report and wishes to find out more about the modelling work behind the headline results. The second objective of this paper is to give a more detailed guide to the modelling approach, describing how key features of the problem are represented in the model and noting someof the key assumptions and limitations of the approach. This material is more technical, and willbe particularly useful for people with knowledge of other energy models.

This publication has been produced as part of the work on the ETI’s internationally peer reviewed energy system modelling environment (ESME) - a national energy system design and planning capability that helps to identify key areas for ETI investments. ESME is also used by UK Government to underpin and inform energy policy.
