This project is aimed at reinforcing the collaboration between the Sustainable Gas Institute (Imperial College London, UK) and the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil) on the improvement of an existing integrated assessment model of the global energy system, with a focus on Brazil. The collaboration will be beneficial for both partners, given the SGI has expertise in the field of integrated assessment modelling and is seeking national data for Brazil, while the RCGI is able to provide data representing the Brazilian energy system while it is seeking to learn how to model global, national and regional energy systems. A case study also will be developed for the Brazilian sugar cane industry. This proposal gives an overview of integrated assessment modelling, with a focus on the model developed by the Sustainable Gas Institute and its characterisation of Brazil. It then briefly presents the two research partners, with their strengths and goals, highlighting the benefit of this potential collaboration. Finally, the proposal summarises the list of activities to be developed in common between Sustainable Gas Institute and Research Centre for Gas Innovation over two years (August 2017 until July 2019), proposing a breakdown of the costs for research exchange and an initial timeline. The activities have been equally divided between the two partners and are based around the core principle of a week-long research exchange for two researchers per year per team. (AU)
