      Regional Heterogeneous Drivers of Electricity Demand in Saudi Arabia

      Jeyhun Mikayilov, Abdulelah Darandary, Ryan Alyamani, Fakhri Hasanov, Hatem Al Atawi

      Aggregate residential electricity consumption in Saudi Arabia has increased rapidly over the past several decades, largely due to population increases and fast economic growth (SAMA 2019). The growth in electricity consumption has been driven, among other factors, by government-administered prices…

      Energy Governance in China: The Structures and Processes of Government Decision-Making

      Dongmei Chen, Paul Mollet, Brian Efird

      This paper describes the current governance structure of China’s energy sector. The interplay between central government, the Communist Party, regional governments and key economic actors within the framework of China’s five-year planning processes are complex and constantly evolving. As such,…

      Residential electricity use effects of population in Kazakhstan

      Residential electricity use effects of population in Kazakhstan

      International Journal of Energy Technology and Policy

      We studied impacts of population groups of 15–64 and 65–above on residential electricity use in Kazakhstan in the STIRPAT framework. Unlike earlier studies for Kazakhstan in the STIRPAT framework, we applied time series cointegration and error correction methods. Results from…

      Welfare Implications of the Rebound Effect From More Energy-Efficient Passenger Cars

      Anwar Gasim, Ziyad Alfawzan

      Improving the energy efficiency of passenger cars makes it cheaper to drive, allowing motorists to take to the roads more frequently. This additional driving, which offsets some of the expected energy savings from energy efficiency, is known as the rebound…

      Prices versus policy: An analysis of the drivers of the primary fossil fuel mix

      Energy Policy

      Energy policymakers often attempt to shape their countries’ energy mix, rather than leave it purely to market forces. By calibrating and simulating a Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model, this paper analyzes the primary fossil fuel mix in the USA…

      Impact of Domestic Fuel Price Reforms on the use of Public Transport in Saudi Arabia
      Future of Transport and Fuel Demand

      Impact of Domestic Fuel Price Reforms on the use of Public Transport in Saudi Arabia

      In 2016, policymakers in Saudi Arabia increased domestic transportation fuel prices, which are expected to approach market levels in the near future. Current low crude oil prices offer an excellent opportunity for policymakers to deregulate the passenger transportation sector without…

      A tutorial on building policy models as mixed-complementarity problems

      A tutorial on building policy models as mixed-complementarity problems

      Interfaces

      After 50 years of development, building and solving mixed-complementarity problems (MCPs) have become commonplace for policy models that analyze markets. These models are used to develop policies that reshape markets, or introduce markets that replace other organizational forms. In this…

      Macroeconomic and Welfare Effects of Energy Policies in Saudi Arabia: The MEGIR-SA Model
      Productivity and Economic Diversification

      Macroeconomic and Welfare Effects of Energy Policies in Saudi Arabia: The MEGIR-SA Model

      MEGIR – Model with Energy, Growth and Intergenerational Redistribution – investigates the long-run implications for growth and equity across generations of different energy policies. It is the first general equilibrium model with overlapping generations to be developed and applied for…

      Measuring persistent and transient energy efficiency in the US

      Energy Efficiency

      The promotion of US energy efficiency policy is seen as a very important activity. Generally, the level of energy efficiency of a country or state is approximated by energy intensity, commonly calculated as the ratio of energy use to GDP.…

      Measurement of energy efficiency based on economic foundations

      Energy Economics

      Energy efficiency policy is seen as a very important activity by almost all policy makers. In practical energy policy analysis, the typical indicator used as a proxy for energy efficiency is energy intensity. However, this simple indicator is not necessarily…

      The Economics of Energy Vulnerability

      The economic vulnerability of an economy to energy disruptions is traditionally viewed through the lens of price shocks. This ‘energy vulnerability’ is driven by the energy mix, the infrastructure and the supply chain resilience that an economy enjoys.

      Coal: Modeling a complex fuel source

      Coal represented 30% of worldwide primary energy consumption in 2013 and would become the most consumed fuel through 2040, under the International Energy Agency (IEA) Current Policies Scenario. However, even in countries with policies designed to curb its supply and…
