IUK: Analysis of the IUK National Infrastructure Pipeline

May 12, 2016

In 2015, we used NISMOD to assess the IUK National Infrastructure Pipeline, which consists of around 550 infrastructure projects with a budget of £438 billion for the next decade. We applied the NISMOD-LP model to analyse the sensitivity of the proposed IUK National Infrastructure Pipeline to various future socio-economic and climate change scenarios. The primary aim of the collaboration was to analyse IUK’s pipeline of infrastructure investments and explore alternative longer-term strategies. The study focused on energy, transport and water sectors, which represent over 90% of the overall investment. A report describing the methodology and analysis is available to download.
