Abstract

A detailed overview of the methodologies used to develop the 2.0 °C and 1.5 °C scenario presented in this book. Starting with the overall modelling approach, the interaction of seven different models is explained which are used to calculate and developed detailed scenarios for greenhouse gas emission and energy pathways to stay within a 2.0 °C and 1.5 °C global warming limit. The following models are presented: For the non-energy GHG emission pathways, the Generalized Equal Quantile Walk (GQW)method, the land-based sequestration design method and the Carbon cycle and climate (MAGICC) model. For the energy pathways, a renewable energy resources assessment for space constrained environments ([..
