    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.

    The energy consumption is actually driven by the energy services required by the households. The IEA database iea2014 was used to estimate the energy consumption in the buildings (residential and commercial) sector. The energy services modelled are: Space Heating, Water Heating, Cooking, Lighting, Cooling (Ambient Conditioning) and Appliances. For these services the energy service intensity was calculated relative to the total estimated buildings as a first indicator of the energy demand estimation. Non-electricity-based technology participation for lighting, such as kerosene, biomass and candles was also estimated. For ambient heating and cooling the average HDD and CDD for every region were estimated.
