The MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) Model: Version 4
(MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-08)
The Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model is the part of the MIT Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM) that represents the human systems. EPPA is a recursive-dynamic multi-regional general equilibrium model ...
Modeling the Transport Sector: The Role of Existing Fuel Taxes in Climate Policy
(MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2004-11)
Existing fuel taxes play a major role in determining the welfare effects of exempting the transportation sector from measures to control greenhouse gases. To study this phenomenon we modify the MIT Emissions Prediction and ...
Directed Technical Change and Climate Policy
(MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-04)
This paper studies the cost effectiveness of climate policy if there are technology externalities. For this purpose, we develop a forward-looking CGE model that captures empirical links between CO2 emissions associated ...
Integrated Economic and Climate Projections for Impact Assessment
(MIT Joint Program, 2013-05)
We designed scenarios for impact assessment that explicitly address policy choices and uncertainty in climate response. Economic projections and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions for the “no climate policy” scenario ...
What GHG Concentration Targets are Reachable in this Century?
(MIT Joint Program, 2013-07-26)
We offer simulations that help to understand the relationship between GHG emissions and concentrations, and the relative role of long-lived (e.g., CO2) and short-lived (e.g., CH4) emissions. We show that, absent technologies ...
Climate Co-benefits of Tighter SO2 and NOx Regulations in China
(MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10-01)
Air pollution has been recognized as a significant problem in China. In its Twelfth Five Year Plan (FYP), China proposes to reduce SO2 and NOx emissions significantly, and here we investigate the cost of achieving those ...
