Modeling the low-carbon energy transition of the territories: a TIMES-SUD PACA model to assess the long-term decarbonization strategy of the south-east region of France

Abstract : The SUD Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region in southern France recently redefined its objectives concerning the decarbonization of its territory and especially of its energy system. This was a response to guidelines specified in different climate-energy laws and plans, which establish both national targets for greenhouse gases, energy production, and air quality, and strategies to reach a low-carbon scenario in 2050. In addition, the NOTRe law gives the French regions the necessary competences to develop their own energy system and policies related to other climate topics. Thus, a TIMES-SUD PACA bottom-up optimization model representing the electricity sector of the Région SUD was developed in order to analyze the impact that these policies might have on the decarbonization of the electricity sector. This decarbonization presents specific challenges compared to the rest of France, such as risks for electricity supply due to a non-looped electricity grid (a situation qualified as an electricity peninsula) that affects the east of the region, and a high level of renewable potential, but a low local energy production. First results from the model show that decarbonization of the Région SUD electricity sector is possible involving the use of local available renewable resources.
