Environment-economy modelling: climate change and energy policies
The OECD’s ENV-Linkages model, with its general equilibrium structure, is a powerful tool to analyse the impacts of climate change and energy policies policies. Analytical work based on the ENV-Linkages model development spans over a wide range of issues dealing with the interlinkages between environment and the economy: costs and effectiveness of carbon markets, linking of carbon markets, climate change mitigation and employment, climate change mitigation policies and energy policies such as the removal of fossil fuel subsidies.
The Economic Impacts of the IEA World Efficient Scenario (2014) provides a background report on macroeconomic impacts of the "World Efficient Scenario" presented in the WEO (2012) and highlights the economic and environmental benefits of investing in energy efficiency.
Modelling of distribution impacts of energy subsidy reforms: An illustration with Indonesia provides, in the case of Indonesia, an assessment of the economic, environmental and distributional impacts of fossil fuels consumption subsidy reforms. The study is based on the context that pertained until mid-2014, when international oil prices where high and before the recent phase out of Gasoline and Diesel subsidies by the Indonesian authorities. This work is based on a version of ENV-Linkages that includes over 10 000 Indonesian household groups.
