MESSAGE combines technologies and fuels to construct so-called "energy chains", making it possible to map energy flows from supply to demand. The model can help design long term strategies by analyzing cost optimal energy mixes, investment needs and other costs for new infrastructure, energy supply security, energy resource utilization, rate of introduction of new technologies (technology learning), environmental constraints, etc.
