  • Delarue, E.; Morris, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-03)
    In several regions of the world, the share of intermittent renewables (such as wind and solar PV) in electricity generation is rapidly increasing. The current share of these renewable energy sources (RES) can still more ...
  • Blanc, E.; Sultan, B. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-03)
    This study estimates statistical models emulating maize yield responses to changes in temperature and precipitation simulated by global gridded crop models. We use the unique and newly-released Inter-Sectoral Impact ...
  • Chen, Y.-H.H.; Paltsev, S.; Reilly, J.M.; Morris, J.F.; Babiker, M.H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-03)
    The MIT Economic Projection and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model has been broadly applied on energy and climate policy analyses. In this paper, we provide an updated version of the model based on the most recent global economic ...
  • Koesler, S. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-02)
    The specification of parameters is a crucial task in the development of economic models. The objective of this paper is to improve the standard parameter specification of computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. On ...
  • Winchester, N.; Malina, R.; Staples, M.D.; Barrett, S.R.H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-02)
    We analyze the economic and emissions impacts on U.S. commercial aviation of the Federal Aviation Administration’s renewable jet fuel goal when met using advanced fermentation (AF) fuel from perennial grasses. These fuels ...
  • Kishimoto, Paul (2015-01-30)
    Climate and energy policy in China will have important and uneven impacts on the country’s regionally heterogeneous transport system. In order to simulate these impacts, transport sector detail is added to a multi-sector, ...
  • Winchester, N.; Reilly, J.M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2015-01)
    What will large-scale global bioenergy production look like? We investigate this question by developing a detailed representation of bioenergy in a global economy-wide model. We develop a scenario with a global carbon ...
  • Luo, Xiaohu; Zhang, Da; Caron, Justin; Zhang, Xiliang; Karplus, Valerie (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-12-02)
    Interprovincial migration flows involve substantial relocation of people and productive activity, with implications for regional energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. In China, these flows are not explicitly considered ...
  • Morris, J.F.; Reilly, J.M.; Chen, Y.-H.H. (M, 2014-12)
    Considerations regarding the roles of advanced technologies are crucial in energy-economic modeling, as these technologies, while usually not yet commercially viable, could substitute for fossil energy when relevant policies ...
  • Du, Y.; Paltsev, S. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-11)
    The introduction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as an option for international trade has created a market for natural gas where global prices may eventually be differentiated by the transportation costs between world ...
  • Fant, C.; Schlosser, C.A.; Gao, X.; Strzepek, K.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-11)
    The sustainability of future water resources is of paramount importance and is affected by many factors, including population, wealth and climate. Inherent in how these factors change in the future is the uncertainty of ...
  • Bozonnat, C.; Schlosser, C.A. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-10)
    The extent, availability and reliability of solar power generation are assessed over Europe, and—following a previously developed methodology—special attention is given to the intermittency of solar power. Combined with ...
  • Zhang, Xiliang; Karplus, Valerie J.; Qi, Tianyu; Zhang, Da; He, Jiankun (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-10)
    While China is on track to meet its global climate commitments through 2020, China’s post-2020 CO2 emissions trajectory is highly uncertain, with projections varying widely across studies. Over the past year, the Chinese ...
  • Jacoby, H.D.; Chen, Y.-H.H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-08)
    With the objective of stimulating timely and open discussion of the current attempt to formulate a new climate agreement—to be reached at the 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP-21) in Paris during November of ...
  • Xu, L.; Pyles, R.D.; Paw U, K.T.; Chen, S.-H.; Monier, E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-08)
    In this study, the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF) is coupled with the Advanced Canopy-Atmosphere-Soil Algorithm (ACASA), a high complexity land surface model. Although WRF is a state-of-the-art regional ...
  • Caron, J.; Metcalf, G.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-08)
    We improve on existing estimates of the carbon dioxide (CO2) content of consumption across regions of the United States. Using a multi-regional input-output (MRIO) framework, we estimate the direct and indirect CO2 emissions ...
  • Qi, T.; Winchester, N.; Zhang, D.; Zhang, X.; Karplus, V.J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-05)
    The China-in-Global Energy Model (C-GEM) is a global Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model that captures the interaction of production, consumption and trade among multiple global regions and sectors – including five ...
  • Rausch, S.; Karplus, V.J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-05)
    Regulatory measures have proven the favored approach to climate change mitigation in the U.S., while market-based policies have gained little traction. Using a model that resolves the U.S. economy by region, income category, ...
  • Morris, J.; Webster, M.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-04)
    The electric power sector, which accounts for approximately 40% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, will be a critical component of any policy the U.S. government pursues to confront climate change. In the context of uncertainty ...
  • Saari, R.; Selin, N.E.; Rausch, S.; Thompson, T.M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-04)
    Air quality co-benefits can potentially reduce the costs of greenhouse gas mitigation. However, while many studies of the cost of greenhouse gas mitigation model the full macroeconomic welfare impacts, most studies of air ...
