Institution COPPE/UFRJ (Cenergia), Brazil,
Solution concept General equilibrium (closed economy)
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.

For gaseous fuels, the only options presented are related to hydrogen technologies. Synthetic natural gas technologies are not addressed in the COFFEE model. Despite that, they can be easily introduced into the modelling framework in future analysis if needed. The hydrogen technologies available and their parameters are presented in the Figure 1.
