Abstract

The dual purpose of the GreenREFORM model is to model the effect of economic policies on emissions and the effects of emissions regulation on the economy. To do this, GreenREFORM requires a module that forecasts emissions. This memo details how this is currently done.
The organizing principle is to calibrate emissions coefficients for each type of emissions that are sector-, fuel- and time-specific. Use these emission coefficients can then, in conjunction with other outputs of GreenREFORM, to simulate emissions.
