Project description
DECADE consortium concentrated on the decadal climate variability. Time period of these variations is of the same order of magnitude as are the life cycles of infrastructures and corresponding investments, such as those related to energy systems. Is has therefore been fruitful to consider both the variations in availability of renewable energy as well as energy market mechanisms from a Nordic perspective. The multidisciplinary DECADE project has published, e.g., a new climate model data analysis method based on so-called random projections, a new type of coupled forest ecology model, as well as a model for the social cost of carbon. The DECADE project, as a whole, has improved our knowledge base to face the decadal scale climate variations.
