IRENA’s Long-term Energy Scenarios (LTES) Network provides a global platform to exchange knowledge and good practices in the use and development of model-based long-term energy scenarios (LTES) to guide the clean energy transition. It aims to promote wider and more effective use of LTES in government for energy and climate policy-making.

Key stakeholders involved in the LTES Network are:

  • Scenario users within government planning teams and policy-making institutions.
  • Scenario developers within government modelling teams or technical institutions supporting government.

The LTES Network focuses and aims to benefit members in the institutional aspects around three areas:
