Ignoring synergies and trade-offs between energy and natural flows can generate misleading modelling outcomes. Several modelling tools are available to address energy and the nexus. Based on six such models, this paper aims to support the design and testing of coherent strategies for sustainable development. Model improvements would be achieved by comparing model outcomes and including a common baseline, according to the authors.
