Kicking off MIMO project
Multi-sectoral Integrated Platform for the national planning of energy transition pathways
Kick off meeting of the MIMO project at the Department of Energy, with ten professors and researchers involved.
The MIMO (Multi-sectoral Integrated Modelling platform for planning national energy transition pathways) project aims to develop a new multidisciplinary modelling platform, based on the integration of energy and micro- and macro-economic models. A platform that will make it possible to determine how and where economic resources should be allocated to promote the energy transition, the type of technological evolution to be adopted to ensure a predetermined energy target and whether the necessary technological changes are actually compatible with sustainable growth.
These are innovative interconnected tools responding to the need to assess the technological feasibility of the transition process and quantify the implications in terms of economic, social and environmental sustainability, supporting policy decisions.
MIMO is funded with €350,000, of which €220,000 by the Ministry of University and Research (MUR) as a "Project of Relevant National Interest" (PRIN). In addition to our university, it sees the participation of Università di Macerata, Università degli Studi di Firenze and IRPET, under the coordination of Professor Matteo Vincenzo Rocco of the Department of Energy of the Politecnico di Milano.
