Energy economics

Energy economics is a broad scientific subject area which includes topics related to supply and use of energy in societies. Due to diversity of issues and methods applied and shared with a number of academic disciplines, energy economics does not present itself as a self-contained academic discipline, but it is an applied subdiscipline of economics. From the list of main topics of economics, some relate strongly to energy economics: Input–output model Industrial organization Macroeconomics Operations research Finance Computable general equilibrium Environmental economics Microeconomics Res ...

ACEGES

The ACEGES model is a decision support tool for energy policy by means of controlled computational experiments. The ACEGES tool is designed to be the foundation for large custom-purpose simulations of the global energy system. The ACEGES methodological framework, developed by Voudouris by extending Voudouris, is based on the agent-based computational economics paradigm. ACE is the computational study of economies modeled as evolving systems of autonomous interacting agents. The ACEGES tool is written in Java and runs on Windows, Mac OS and Linux platforms. The ACEGES tool is based on: The ...

Air source heat pumps

An air source heat pump is a system which transfers heat from outside to inside a building, or vice versa. Under the principles of vapor compression refrigeration, an ASHP uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and a condenser to absorb heat at one place and release it at another. They can be used as a space heater or cooler, and are sometimes called "reverse-cycle air conditioners". In domestic heating use, an ASHP absorbs heat from outside air and releases it inside the building, as hot air, hot water-filled radiators, underfloor heating and/or domestic hot water supply. The sa ...

Apollo's Fire (book)

Apollos Fire: Igniting Americas Clean Energy Economy is a 2007 book by Washington State Governor Jay Inslee and researcher Bracken Hendricks. Inslee first proposed an Apollo-scale program, designed to galvanize the nation around the urgent goal of solving the environmental and energy crisis, in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 2002. Eventually Inslee co-authored Apollos Fire, in which he says that through improved Federal policies the United States can wean itself off of its dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuel, create millions of Green-collar worker jobs, and stop global warming. Al ...

The budgetary rule

The budgetary rule is a rule concerning the usage of capital gains from The Government Pension Fund - Global of Norway. The rule states that a maximum of 3% of the funds value should be allocated to the yearly government budget. Its main stated justification is to avoid the Dutch disease in the Norwegian economy due to the large influx of oil-sourced revenue. The rule was introduced in 2001 during the First cabinet Stoltenberg, and has a broad cross-party support. The rule was last changed from 4% to 3% february 2017. Every party in the parliament was in favour of the change, except the ri ...
