Abstract

One of the greatest challenges facing the human race is planning for and meeting the energy needs and demands of tomorrow. The Montachusett Regional Energy forecasting model does this using system dynamics under a variety of simulations and scenarios. The model looks at the demand of the region's energy needs and shows the effect of different variables. It looks at the population, regional services, regional attractiveness, land occupied, and a variety of other factors to determine how the region will develop and how its energy demand will change accordingly.
