A technical analysis of FTT: Heat
This report (2017) introduces a new bottom-up model for simulating Future Technology Transformations in the European residential heating sector, FTT:Heat. Based on scenario inputs for the future demand for heating as an energy service, the model simulates the uptake and replacement of heating technologies by households in all 28 EU Member States up to 2050. It features an explicit representation of households’ technology choices, based on market competition, climatic conditions, policies, and induced technological change.
