2. CIB Workshop


Date of the Workshop: October 12 and 13, 2017

Time plan of the Workshop: Timetable


Structure and motivation:

The first workshop supplied us with a collection of qualitative and quantitative factors that aim to describe the future European electricity market in 2050. The list of key factors (descriptors) covers social, technical and economic aspects of plausible changes. The identification and direction of direct interdependences between those descriptors, as well as their nature was the topic of the second CIB workshop.

Short Overview of the Results:

The project team identified and prepared an analysis of 120 direct links between the descriptors. All together 77 (65%) intersections were covered during the second Workshop. The design of the group work and plenum discussion was based on the preliminary results of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Based on expert reviews, this multi-criteria decision analysis tool provided us with the valuable information on the priority raking of descriptors: their intrinsic capacity to characterize the system under study. Within this workshop the attention of experts was driven by the analysis of cross-impacts involving the chosen focus descriptors.
