In this project, COPPE/UFRJ will develop further its MESSAGE model for Brazil, as well as produce new MESSAGE models for Ecuador and Peru.


MESSAGE is a systems engineering optimization model used for medium- to long-term energy system planning, energy policy analysis, and scenario development. The model provides a framework for representing an energy system with all its interdependencies from resource extraction, imports and exports, conversion, transport, and distribution, to the provision of energy end-use services such as light, space conditioning, industrial production processes, and transportation (http://webarchive.iiasa.ac.at/Research/ENE/model/message.html).


More details will be posted as the project progresses.
