Anticipation Myopic

The model distinguishes different geographical representations according to the resource considered.

Supply is linked to demand regions via trade:

  • Oil: producers all export to single global market "pool"
  • Gas: large producers export towards 14 importing regions; small producers only supply domestic demand
  • Coal: large producers export towards 14 importing regions; small producers only supply domestic demand
  • Solid biomass: producers supply domestic demand or export towards a global market depending on the relative cost of production
  • Liquid biofuels: similar to solid biomass
  • Uranium: single global supply cost curve
  • Primary electricity (hydro, solar, wind): country-specific renewables potentials for power generation for domestic electricity demand
