The first release of the IMACLIM-Country code based on the IMACLIM-France version
The computation of long term economic pathways and the assessment of sustainable development policies require models able to embark information and expectations from economists, engineers, earth scientists and stakeholders. CIRED has drawn the architecture of modelling IMACLIM in order to cope with this scientific challenge at the interface of environment and development issues, in particular to assess climatic and energy policies. It relies on a hybrid model which combines a macroeconomic approach with sectional-engineers views. There are a regional scale version, IMACLIM-Country, and a world version IMACLIM-R
This code is related to the IMACLIM-Country version. It provides a common architecture to all the country versions under development.
Country versions mainly differ by the economic and physical accounts data that are fed to the platform, but can also consider alternative behavioural specifications and macroeconomic closure options. The modularity of the platform allows operating (i.e. hybridising data, calibrating and solving) at various levels of disaggregation of economic sectors and household groups, up to limits defined by each country’s original dataset.
Future developments in next versions will let the user select the region under study for IMACLIM-Country
