C3IAM can assess a number of different economy-, energy-, environment- and climate-related policies, depending on the scenario setup and the research topic. Key areas where policy responses can be introduced into the model are:

  • Carbon emission tax
  • Carbon emission quotas and trading permits
  • Share of technology in power, iron and steel cement, transport, buildings and chemical industries
  • Low/zero/negative carbon subsidies
  • Pollution/Energy taxes
  • Trade policies (e.g. import tariff change
  • Land use and agriculture policies
  • Cooperation mechanisms on climate mitigation
  • Other policies (e.g. income tax change, subsidy change and so on )
