Abstract

In order to complete the EURECA --> EXPLOR --> EDM EC Energy Model Chain, the EXPLOR and EDM models for Belgium had to be established. On the basis of a database provided by DULBEA, Bureau du Plan, EXPLOR and EDM models had been estimated and composed. The models were run on the assumptions used for the two Reference Cases defined at Brussels. In Reference Case II (with the lower energy price assumption) the gross domestic product grows by about 1.93 percent a year until 1990 and the resulting final energy demand follows with 1.06 percent a year. The model was implemented and run on the ICL computer of the EC Commission. The second task referred to the automation of the EEE model chain software. The EURECA model was implemented into the "table oriented" database, the linkage to the EXPLOR models was automated on the basis of growth rates, the France and Netherlands EDM models were also implemented into the "table oriented" database and the linkage between EXPLOR and EDM was improved in order to calculate for relative prices. Finally the EDM results have been transformed for all countries in order to achieve a unified presentation.
