Working paper, comparison Part 2: Model simulations. Impact of CO2 taxes on GDP, energy, and CO2 emissions. TranSust Working Paper, 2004

As a second step for obtaining a better understanding of the different model structures and their impact on policy analysis a set of standardized simulations was agreed upon. The following procedure was applied.

First for each model a business-as-usual scenario was made up to the year 2050. Second carbon taxes were increased gradually up to 2050 to the final rates of 10, 20, 30, and 50 per ton of CO2. Finally these simulations were carried out with and without recycling assumptions.

The results of these joint model simulations are documentated in the working paper “Model Comparison Part 2 - Model Simulations” and are available from the TranSust website.
