Solution concept General equilibrium (closed economy)
Solution method Optimization

Techno-economic parameters that form the input deck of COPPE-MSB were derived from various sources (Koberle et al., 2015; Nogueira et al., 2014; J Portugal-Pereira et al., 2016; Soria et al., 2015). Techno-economic input parameters of IAMs in general, and also of COPPE-MSB, include specific investment costs (CAPEX, in US$/kW), construction times (years), conversion efficiency (%), and any technical or economic specifications that may be required to appropriately model the performance of an energy technology (investment and O&M costs, minimum utilization time, inputs and outputs, auxiliary inputs and secondary outputs among others).
