    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    BRUS2 is a technical-economic bottom-up scenario model. The objective of BRUS2 is to provide decision-makers with information on consequences of given trends of parameters of society like population growth and productivity, and of political goals, e.g., energy saving initiatives. BRUS2 simulates the energy system by four demand sectors: residential, service. production, and transport, and by two supply systems: electricity, and gas and oil. The simulations are carried out in three years: a base year For calibration, a midterm year preferably in accordance with the planning horizon of national and regional plans, and an end year, used to study long-term trends of development of society and technology. The results of simulations include fuel demand, emissions of pollutants, and economic consequences. BRUS2 has been implemented in several countries, recently in Mexico. The methodology is described and illustrated with some examples.
