Energy and Power Evaluation Program (ENPEP-BALANCE)


Energy and Power Evaluation Program (ENPEP-BALANCE) is a nonlinear equilibrium model that matches the demand for energy with available resources and technologies. Its market-based simulation approach allows ENPEP-BALANCE to determine the response of various segments of the energy system to changes in energy prices and demand levels. The model relies on a decentralized decision-making process in the energy sector and can be calibrated to the different preferences of energy users and suppliers.

Key questions addressed:

  • What is the impact of technical and policy constraints on energy markets in the future?
  • What is the projected environmental impact of energy markets in the future?

Sample data inputs:

  • Energy system structure
  • Base-year energy statistics
  • Projected energy demand growth
  • Technical and policy constraints

Sample quantitative outputs:

  • Equilibrium prices and quantities of energy sources
  • Energy consumption by sector or fuel type
  • Primary energy supply
  • Power sector fuel consumption
  • Emissions by sector and fuel type
