|Solution concept||The models can run scenarios as a stand-alone application or linked through a soft-link process.|
|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 energy end-use is defined as the energy demanded by the different sector to provide them services. COFFEE includes the transport, industrial, residential and commercial sectors. The demand for the service of these sectors is projected to the future which makes possible to estimate the energy demand over the considered time horizon (Figure 1).
