A set of models for the evaluation of alternative energy scenarios has been developed and applied at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). The model set, long in development after the initiative and guidance of Prof. Wolf Häfele, includes several individual models: an accounting framework type energy demand model, a dynamic linear programming energy supply and conversion system model, an input-output type model to calculate the impacts of alternative energy scenarios, an oil trade gaming model, and a macroeconomic model. The models have been designed to integrate into a set for long term global analysis.

The models together make up a set which makes use of a highly iterative process for energy scenario projections and analyses. Each model is quite simple and straightforward in structure; a great deal of human involvement is necessary in applications of the set.

A first application of the models to study two alternative energy scenarios for fifty years has been completed. Some samples of the results, presented in this paper, reveal the richness of information common to many modeling techniques. Several of the individual models are documented so that details of equations, assumptions, and data can be observed.
