Description of model

GEMINI-E3 has been specifically designed to assess world climate change policies, in particular the effects of the Kyoto Protocol, both at the microeconomic and the macroeconomic levels. It is a multi-country, multi-sector, dynamic model incorporating a highly detailed representation of indirect taxation.

The current version of the model is capable of assessing intra-European and domestic policies such as the directive on quotas, project of directive "energy-climate" and the determination of carbon value. A new version, GEMINI-EMU, has been developed specifically aimed at assessing intra-European macroeconomic policies but also relevant for climate change scenarios appraisal.

Particular relevance GEMINI-E3 is  relevant in analysing the socio-economic impacts of climate change mitigation policies (focusing on the Kyoto Protocol), including taxation and emissions trading.
Coverage All Annex B countries and 11 non-Annex B countries

A game of international climate policy solved with a homogeneous oracle-based method for variational inequalities - This paper presents a game-theoretic model for the international negotiations that should take place to renew or extend the Kyoto protocol beyond 2012.  GEMINI-E3 is used to estimate the economic payoffs to the different 'players' in the game (http://gemini-e3.epfl.ch/webdav/site/gemini-e3/shared/A game of international climate policy solved with a homogeneous oracle-based method for variational inequalities).
