Energy Trade

Regional trade is modelled in the trade module. In the current version of TIAM-UCL, regional trade is allowed for coal, natural gas, LNG, natural gas liquid, uranium oil and oil products such as heavy fuel oil, gasoline, naphtha, diesel, energy crops and solid biomass. Emission trading under cap-and-trade policy is also modelled and the level of trading can be constrained. Trading in the base-year 2005 is calibrated to the actual energy import and export data. Base-year energy trade (import and export of fossil resources) for the UK is taken from DUKES (2010).
