Egad… secret science in central planning!
The Financial Times reports:
The credibility of a European energy review has been cast into doubt by experts who point out that long-term plans to cut carbon emissions are based on an economic model owned by a single Greek university that cannot be independently scrutinised…
The economic model, known as “Primes”, is owned by the National Technical University of Athens and is designed to show how using different mixes of energy sources affect the wider economy. The European Commission has used it for many years to help guide the bloc’s energy policies but industry critics complain its assumptions are impossible to question because the model is privately owned.
