ERIS: A model prototype with endogenous technological change
This paper describes the ERIS Model Prototype, developed within the EU-TEEM project as a flexible tool to study different modelling approaches on the endogenisation of technological change in energy optimisation models. The basic formulation and several variants are presented. Some illustrative results and insights obtained with the prototype are discussed and some perspectives for its future development outlined.
