NEXSTEP methodology

The three key steps of the methodology are:

  1. Energy and emissions modelling will help estimate the share of different energy resources, and identify the technological interventions needed to achieve those shares.
  2. Economic analysis to identify the economically feasible options/interventions.
  3. Policy analysis to determine/identify the policies that are feasible for implementation in the national context.

The methodology has been peer reviewed by a panel of external experts. The panel members provided very positive feedback with a recommendation for a few minor adjustments.

The methodology also has been tested in Indonesia (one of the three pilot countries) by energy planners and experts in collaboration with the National Energy Council (NEC) and found to be very useful for SDG7 planning.
