The following models are used for the purpose of the Impact Assessment on establishing the Connecting Europe Facility: TRANSTOOLS, the PRIMES model for determining energy balances in 2020 and 2030, a specialized grid modelling framework developed by KEMA and Imperial College London for evaluating, resulting infrastructure needs in the electricity and gas sector and two specialized analysis and modelling tools developed by ARUP and JRC for assessing infrastructure needs for CO2 transport. The corresponding IA Report (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=SEC:2011:1262:FIN:EN:PDF) gives an account of these applications.
