Model scope and methods

Model type

  • Integrated assessment model
  • Energy system model
  • CGE
  • CBA-integrated assessment model

Geographical scope

  • Global
  • Regional

Objective

DART is a global multi-sectoral, multi-regional recursive-dynamic CGE model. First developed in the 1990s, it has been widely applied to analyze environmental policies, energy policies, biofuel policies, and international climate policies. The version used here is designed to analyze climate and energy policies.

Solution concept

  • Partial equilibrium (price elastic demand)
  • Partial equilibrium (fixed demand)
  • General equilibrium (closed economy)

Solution horizon

  • Recursive dynamic (myopic)
  • Intertemporal optimization (foresight)

Solution method

  • Simulation
  • Optimization
