Bioenergy - COFFEE-TEA
|Model Documentation - COFFEE-TEA|
|Institution||COPPE/UFRJ (Cenergia), Brazil, http://www.cenergialab.coppe.ufrj.br/.|
|Solution concept||General equilibrium (closed economy)|
|Solution method||The COFFEE model is solved through Linear Programming (LP). The TEA model is formulated as a mixed complementary problem (MCP) and is solved through Mathematical Programming System for General Equilibrium -- MPSGE within GAMS using the PATH solver.|
The resources considered in COFFEE as biomass for bioenergy are the crop for energy, woody biomass, grassy biomass, that are exclusively for this purpose, and agriculture residues. The amount of resource available depends on the land use and agriculture activities.
