Solution concept The models can run scenarios as a stand-alone application or linked through a soft-link process.
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.

COFFEE and TEA are long-term global models suitable for policies and climate aspects evaluation. The temporal dimension of the models covers the 2010--2100 period. The base year is 2010 and the time step is five years. COFFEE is a perfect foresight model, while TEA is a recursive dynamic myopic model.
