Anticipation Myopic

The model distinguishes the following energy conversion processes:

  • Electricity production: detailed representation of power generation capacities and production
  • Heat production: coverage of distributed means (cogeneration, solar), no coverage of centralized means
  • Gaseous fuels: gas (natural gas and methane recovery), hydrogen
  • Liquid fuels: crude oil refineries; liquid fuels production from coal, gas and solid biomass
  • Solid fuels: coal (and coke), biomass
