Including renewable electricity generation and CCS into the DART model

This paper describes how a variety of renewable electricity generation technologies (wind, hydro, solar, and solid biomass) and advanced electricity generation from coal and gas including carbon capture and storage (CCS) is included into the multi-region, multi-sector recursive dynamic CGE-model DART. In principle, the electricity sector are split into several generation technologies to allow for renewable electricity production. CCS is introduced as latent technology and is deployed only under a suciently high carbon price. In all technologies, a fi xed resource is used to calibrate for the path of the generation technologies.
