Aktualisierung und Erweiterung des EVA-Modells
Project description:

Für das BMWi ist das Anwendermodell EVA (EnergieVerbrauchsAnalyse) entwickelt worden, welches es erlaubt, die Konsequenzen von Parameteränderungen auf Energieverbrauch, THG-Emissionen und Gesamtwirtschaft abzuschätzen. In weiteren Projekten wurde das Modell erweitert und die Datenbank aktualisiert. In der neuen Version wurden die Einstellmöglichkeiten für die Simulationsrechnungen überarbeitet, erweitert und an aktuelle Entwicklungen angepasst. Die Auswertungsdateien wurden überarbeitet und erweitert. Die quantitativen Ziele des Energiekonzepts können nun mit den Ergebnissen der gerechneten Simulationen verglichen und die Zielerreichung überprüft werden. Das Modell EVA ist mit der grafischen Nutzeroberfläche IMAGINE ausgestattet, die es dem Anwender nach einer Schulung erlaubt, selbstständig Simulationen zu rechnen und auszuwerten.

Projecttitle:
Partnership for model-based Analysis of Climate-Economic-related development policies
Project description:

"The proposed mobility measure explores new possibilities for joint research with institutions from different African countries by identifying the need of science-based analysis of the impacts of relevant (e.g. climate, environment, energy, employment, socio-economic, fiscal) policy measures on the economy and the possibilities to develop corresponding knowledge-based quantitative economic models. Further, the prospect of forming a network of researchers interested in socio-economic and environmental-economic modelling, which enhances the internationalisation of the participants’ research, will be discussed during the workshop. The highly topical issues of for example climate change and its socio-economic effects are not limited by territorial borders. In this international research group on economic modelling, possible policy measures aiming at the mitigation of negative socio-economic effects of climate change can be analysed, compared and best options can be identified. Project partners can exchange their experiences regarding the theoretical development of economic models as well as their practical application and the resulting policy options. Through this international exchange of knowledge the researchers are able to provide science-based and practical decision support for policy makers. The project is divided into three phases: preparation, mobility and future collaboration.

Policy Instruments to Support RE Industrial Value Chain Development
Project description:

The discussion on increasing rates of renewable energy technology (RET) deployment seems to have shifted from why to how. While the cost debate still is important, with falling prices for RETs and fast growing deployment, capturing the benefits of RET deployment slowly becomes the focus of the public and scientific discussion. First studies on employment effects have been published. Though employment and value added are two sides of roughly the same coin, a study of the value chain allows for a specific focus and additional information for policy makers on how to strengthen their countries position in RET deployment. The overarching questions for policy makers are:

  • 1. How can RET investments be turned into drivers and catalysts for sustainable development and value creation with a maximum of tangible benefits for local populations?
  • 2. What policy instruments are most effective for achieving these outcomes?

A new Enviromental Accounting Framework Using Externality Date and Input-Output Tools for Policy Analysis
Project description:

This study on behalf of the Commission of the European Union (EC) tries to set up a detailed environmentally extended (EE) Input-Output (I-O) framework, with links to other socio-economic models, in which as many of these estimates as possible are included. Such an EE I-O table for the EU 25 does not exist. This will allow for the estimation of environmental impacts and external costs of different economic sector activities, final consumption activities and resource consumption for countries in the EU. More detailed information can be found on the project homepage EXIOPOL.
