ENPEP-Balance

Identifies the effects of changes in energy price and demand

The nonlinear, equilibrium ENPEP-BALANCE model 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 decentralised decision-making process in the energy sector and can be connected to the different preferences of energy users and suppliers. Basic parameters include production and consumption levels, and prices; information on the energy system structure; base year energy statistics; projected energy demand growth; and any technical and policy constraints.
