Abstract

The Efom-12C model is a technico-economic supply model that simulates or optimizes the primary energy requirements and the related investments in energy production and consumption necessary in order to satisfy a given exogenous demand of useful or final energy. The main features of this energy supply model are the following: (i) The technico-economic information is stored in a data base designed to allow the user to build modular structures out of an energy sector. (ii) Two operation modes are provided + simulation and optimization + which can be used alternatively on any earlier defined structure. The detailed layout of the Mark-1 version of this model is the object of this report. Part I covers the complete mathematical description of the model and the variety of its technical possibilities. Part II instructs the potential user of this model on how to utilize the accompanying software package to treat the problem he has in mind. Finally, Part III addresses itself to programmers when software modifications or upgradings would be necessary. Specific case studies that were carried out with the EFOM-12C model by the services of the CEC and by energy research and planning groups in the Member States as well as in Spain and in Portugal are reported elsewhere in referenced publications.
