GEMCLIME: Global Excellence in Modelling of Climate and Energy

European Commission

ECI lead: Prof Jim Hall

GEMCLIME examines the drivers of climate change and energy-related risks, the economic impacts of mitigation and adaptation policies, and investigates policy responses to global climate and energy challenges.

Our work

GEMCLIME follows an integrated approach to modelling the impacts of climate and energy policies. The analysis of drivers, impacts, and responses to climate change attributes particular attention to the economics of renewable energies and the valuation of non-marketed goods. The results also provide support to evidence-based policy. GEMCLIME supports research mobility between the EU, and the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, and Chile.
