The energy intensive industry can be a major contributor to CO2 emissions reduction, provided that appropriate investments are made. Predictions about future energy market conditions are needed to assess profitability and net CO2 emissions reduction potential of such measures. Energy market scenarios can be used to reflect different possible future energy market conditions. This paper presents a tool for creating consistent energy market scenarios adapted for evaluation of energy related investments in energy intensive industrial processes. Required user inputs include fossil fuel prices and costs associated with policy instruments, and the outputs are energy market prices and CO2 consequences of import/export of different energy streams (e.g. electric power and biofuel) from an industrial process site. The paper also presents four energy market scenarios for 2020 created with the tool.
