MUSE Brazil (SGRI 2017)
Dr Ivan Garcia Kerdan, Research Assistant at the Sustainable Gas Institute, and Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London
The final part of the MUSE presentation will present MUSE-Brazil, focusing on the approach used for the definition of a country-level energy systems model and the corresponding data requirements. The main aim of MUSE-Brazil is to identify the best uses of Brazilian gas reserves and biomethane in a systems context. The presentation will discuss the sustainable future roles of gas in Brazil up to 2050, as well as resource competition between bioenergy and natural gas and its potential implications in the energy system and land use.
