We will discuss in this presentation the need for decision makers who are concerned about energy issues, in a complex international context, to acquire effective normative tools to cope with multifaceted constraints (climatic, financial, legal, political, technical, etc.). After a brief review of the history of models, we will explore how relevant tools can shed light on the challenges of an energy transition under environmental constraints, taking into account regional, technological and social conditions, in order to better identify the strategies needed for the transformation of technical systems and modes of development.
