This tool maps a future electricity market in Germany and China as well as the use of load management and energy efficiency in industry. Based on these assumptions, the impact of policy measures on market outcomes such as electricity costs or CO2 emissions can be evaluated. Simulation results are output graphically. Users can vary the underlying parameters to analyze and visualize the effect of changing costs or other assumptions.
This tool was developed for the EWI study “A Comparative Analysis and Simulation of DSM and Energy Efficiency in Chinese and German Industry”.
The research was carried out under the framework of the Sino-German Energy Transition Project. As part of the Sino-German Energy Partnership under the commission of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), the Sino-German Energy Transition project supports the Chinese and German think tanks to strengthen the Sino-German scientific exchange on the energy transition and shares German energy transition experiences with a Chinese audience. The project aims to promote a low-carbon-oriented energy policy and help to build a more effective, low-carbon energy system in China through international cooperation and mutual benefit policy research and modeling.
