Integrated Impact Assessment of an Increase in Biofuel Demand in Europe: The Economic and Technological DimensionProject for IPTS/DG-JRC, Sevilla, Call for tender No. No J05/32/2008
- The main task of the project is to improve the analytical capacities for quantitative assessment of first and second generation bio-fuels production in Europe on agricultural markets, farm income and the environment, based on an extension of the CAPRI modelling system. The extended system will then be applied for impact assessment of bio-fuel policies. The project encompasses the following sub-tasks:.
- Development of a biofuel component for CAPRI which includes European biofuel supply and global trade
- Integration of a response surface of the energy model PRIMES in CAPRI to derive endogenous biofuel demand
- Reference run for 2020 and counterfactual scenarios to test new system
- Project period: 01/2009-04/2010
Adaptation of the agricultural sector model CAPRI to cover the European biofuel market
- Integration of bio-ethanol and bio-diesel in the global market model of CAPRI
- Definition of suitable behavioral function for biofuel processing to derive endogenous biofuel feedstock demand
- Development of a first prototype module for second generation biofuels
Linking of the CAPRI model with an energy model PRIMES
- Estimation of a response surface from existing PRIMES simulation results
- Integration of the response surface into CAPRI
- Discussion of suitable biofuel scenarios with the PRIMES team
- Implementation of suitable biofuel scenarios for 2020 and 2030 in line with requirements of the EU Commission (IPTS)
- Scenario runs with the new developed CAPRI biofuel module and analysis of results
- Institute for Food and Resource Economicis, Chair of Economic and Agricultural Policy, University Bonn (co-ordinator)
- Athens University, Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS)
