6th Ruhr Graduate School in Economics "Energy and Climate Policy Modeling with GAMS and MPSGE"
The workshop provides an introduction into partial and general equilibrium models for the state-ofthe-art impact assessment of energy and climate policies. Drawing on basic microeconomic theory, the course will follow model-based peer-reviewed publications in international journals to cover contemporary issues in energy and climate policy such as the promotion of renewable energies, the phase-out of nuclear power, the implementation of environmental tax reforms or the design of international emissions trading schemes. The workshop will provide an introduction to applied (numerical) general equilibrium models constructed using GAMS and MPSGE. The workshop addresses beginners, no previous knowledge of GE modeling is assumed, but knowledge of intermediate microeconomics (master’s level) is important. This workshop is intended for economists who are interested in using numerical modeling for simulation analysis of theoretical models and those who want to do policy analysis with real data.
