The roles and applications of various modeling approaches, aimed at improving the usefulness of energy policy models in public decision making, are covered by this book.

The development, validation, and applications of system dynamics and agent-based models in service of energy policy design and assessment in the 21st century is a key focus.

Annotation * Examines the renewable energy sector and its stakeholders, analysing the reasons for past failures and the key features of successful policies * Written in clear terms, this book contains the experience of world leaders in this field * Including an executive summary, it will be an essential reference for decision-makers, offering a deep understanding of the underlying mechanisms.

Modeling decision making as a support tool for policy making on renewable energy development.
