Anticipation

In C3IAM, technological change in energy is reflected by energy consumption per unit of output decreases externally over time (the so-called autonomous energy efficiency improvement index, AEEI), which has an energy use efficiency improvement over time.

Technological change in electricity sector also has been specified with two advanced generation technologies: natural gas combined cycle technology with carbon capture and sequestration (NGCC-CCS) and integrated coal gasification technology with carbon capture and sequestration (IGCC-CCS). If these technologies are economically competitive with existing technologies, they will endogenously enter.
