Land-use and European power system transition to carbon neutrality: implications, challenges and optimal mix Victor Guillot, Gildas Siggini, Edi Assoumi



This study aims to assess the amount of land needed by the transition towards carbon neutrality of the European power system in 2050. We endogenized the land variable in eTIMES-EU, a long term planning model for the interconnected EU power system. We then assess the impact of explicit constraints on land use on the optimal trajectory and portfolio to meet carbon neutrality.

Keywords Land-use, Power system, Europe, TIMES, Energy planning
