Economy-Wide Modeling of Energy/Environment Policy Scenarios

Active Project
Economy-Wide Modeling of Energy/Environment Policy Scenarios

Focus Areas: 

  • Managed Resources
  • Policy Scenarios
  • Climate Policy
  • Regional Analysis
  • North America

This project continues a collaborative effort with RTI that is providing analytical support to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Economics Branch. The objective is to simulate environmental policy impacts on the US using a recursive-dynamic, computable general equilibrium modeling framework. For certain applications, the model incorporates linkage to partial equilibrium representations of the electricity sector from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Regional Energy Deployment System (ReEDS) to facilitate robust energy and environmental policy analyses.
