Dear Implan colleagues, I'm attempting to model the impacts of a state switching its fuel consumption from the current level of fossil fuel use for electricity production to a lower level (say a 10% reduction) and replacing that consumption with home-grown bio-fuels. This would be shifting from a commodity that is largely imported to our state to one that is produced 100% at home. The simplest way I though out was just running two separate activities (one negative, one positive) and modeling that. However, in looking at the model customization options it appears that I could conceivably alter the trade flows data and edit the proportion of electricity production (sector 3031) that is imported. This would not be an event, but would require the comparison of two separate models. Has anyone attempted to look at this issue? And would they be willing to share some advice. Thanks very much.
