Abstract

This methodological work develops a representation of carbon pricing through the KAPSARC Global Energy Macroeconometric Model (KGEMM). This representation makes two principal contributions in terms of model capabilities: establishing a feedback link from the emissions block to the energy block and connecting the emissions block to the fiscal block, as the government collects revenue from the carbon dioxide emitted by customers / sectors.
