Model information
Institution Institute of Communication And Computer Systems (ICCS)
Concept General equilibrium
Solution method The model is formulated as a simultaneous system of equations with an equal number of variables. The system is solved for each year following a time-forward path. The model uses the GAMS software and is written as a mixed non-linear complementarity problem solved by using the PATH algorithm using the standard solver options.
Anticipation Myopic

The GEM-E3 model quantifies indicators relevant to water, as regards its use by the energy sector, such as fresh - and sea-water withdrawal/consumption from electricity sector, thermal water pollution, electricity requirements of cooling technologies, water prices.
