"Development of multi-regional and multi-sectoral energy-economic model and the analysis of CO2 emission reduction"
by Homma, Takashi, Shunsuke Mori, Keigo Akimoto, Hiromi Yamamoto, Takanobu Kosugi and Toshimasa Tomoda

The KP (Kyoto Protocol) came into force in February 2005, which is an international treaty designed to limit GHG emission for Annex I for the period from 2008 to 2012. The international arguments on the framework of emission reduction after 2013 will also begin soon. Under these circumstances, the role and importance of the mitigation strategies of climate change is increasing. In order to assess the impacts on energy and economy by mitigation of climate change, we have developed a new dynamic optimization-type model, DEARS (Dynamic Energy-economic Analysis model with multi-Regions and multi-Sectors), to deal with the changes in both energy systems and industrial structure not only for the world but also detailed region up to the middle of this century.
This model is an intertemporal non-linear optimization type where the objective function of cumulative consumption utility is maximized. The model represents energy technology choice, sectoral energy consumption and economic growth by region for the middle term. This model consists of an energy systems module having about 15 energy technologies, e.g. coal power with and without CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage), nuclear power and biomass power and of an economic module having 18 economic sectors; the world is divided into 18 regions.
