Table 3.1.2 presents technology for renewable resources that are modelled in the TIAM-UCL. Renewable electricity resources such as hydro, geothermal, solar, tidal and wave are modelled. Solid biomass, energy crops, municipal waste and landfill gas are also modelled. Biomass technologies compete directly at energy service demand level with fossil fuel technologies. No distinction is made between OPEC and Non-OPEC countries for primary and secondary biomass production. Annual availability of renewable resources are controlled in different scenario files. Renewable production can be constrained through annual bounds on capacity and growth constraints.
