Chris Dent, Reader in Industrial Mathematics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, has written a blog article discussing key issues in energy systems modelling (with the help of a few experts including George Box, Darth Vader and Brian Clough). In particular he looks at issues of relating model results to the real world, and what is required to use modelling to support taking good decisions with respect to the real world (as opposed to model world).
