Model information
Institution PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), Netherlands, http://www.pbl.nl/en., Utrecht University (UU), Netherlands, https://www.uu.nl/en.
Solution concept Partial equilibrium (price elastic demand)
Solution method Simulation
Anticipation Simulation modelling framework, without foresight. However, a simplified version of the energy/climate part of the model (called FAIR) can be run prior to running the framework to obtain data for climate policy simulations.

MAGNET includes ethanol and biodiesel as first-generation biofuels made from wheat, sugar cane, maize, and oilseeds 1 and the use of by-products (DDGS, oilcakes) from biofuel production in the livestock sector.
