In the current context of climate emergency, foresight has become an essential tool for assessing the different possible trajectories of the energy mix and the new opportunities to deploy disruptive energy technologies. It seems important to question the robustness of mathematical models used to predict future energy mixes.

The Energy market workshop 2022 will be organized around the presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art technologies to tackle different modelling approaches and the challenges related to the integration of these methods into models for different sectorial applications (mobility, gas and electricity, etc.).
