We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
It aims to analyse the role of energy technologies and their interaction for meeting European energy and climate change policy targets.
It represents the energy system of each EU Member State and neighbouring countries.
The main role of JRC-EU-TIMES is the anticipation and evaluation of technology policy. The baseline scenario of JRC-EU-TIMES is always aligned to the latest EU reference scenario. The model can be used to assess which technological improvements are needed to make technologies competitive under various low-carbon energy scenarios.
The full JRC-EU-TIMES is available online: https://data.jrc.ec.europa.eu/collection/id-00287

JRC-EU-TIMES is linked to JRC-IDEES (power and CHP), ENSPRESO and via a parametrisation also with EMHIRES that are all available on https://data.jrc.ec.europa.eu/collection.
More information on the TIMES family of model can be found on the IEA Energy Technology website.
