Concept Hybrid

Hybrid model that couples an economic growth model with a detailed energy system model and a simple climate model.

Solution method Inter-temporal optimization that maximizes cumulated discounted global welfare: Ramsey-type growth model with Negishi approach to regional welfare aggregation.
Anticipation Perfect Foresight

REMIND (Regional Model of Investments and Development)[1][2][3][4][5][6]is a global multi-regional model incorporating the economy, the climate system, and a detailed representation of the energy sector.
