Socio-economic drivers - EPPA

Jump to: navigation, search

The key socio-economic driver of EPPA is the Hick’s neutral productivity growth, which is calibrated to match a baseline GDP growth trajectory under 1) a set of exogenously given factors, including labor endowment growth, which is assumed to increase proportionally to the population growth and autonomous energy efficiency improvement (AEEI), and 2) a set of factors determined by the model dynamics, which encompass savings, investment, fossil fuel resource depletion, and the evolution of technology specific factor for each backstop technology. While the Hick’s neutral productivity levels are held constant across scenarios, changes in prices and model dynamics will determine levels of variables such as resource allocations, sectoral outputs and GDP [1].
