An Integrated Approach to Modelling Energy Policy in South Africa: Evaluating Carbon Taxes and Electricity Import Restrictions

We link a bottom-up energy sector model to a recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium model of South Africa in order to examine two of the country’s main energy policy considerations: (i) the introduction of a carbon tax and (ii) libera...
