Full Version: Elastic electricity prices in the IMPEXP region
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I would like to model elastic electricity prices in the IMPEXP regions since constant electricity prices in neighbour countries, that are independent the traded volume, can be a very coarse assumption. From the documentation I interpret that this is an included option to TIMES from the note on Elastic supply cost curves in TIMES from 2010. But I am not sure how this feature works……….?

I would like to model the electricity price of the import and export to depend on the quantities that are traded. Is this possible to model with the ELAS parameter? If yes, does it exist a test model where this is illustrated? Have anybody done this? Do I need to base the reference prices on a reference run or can I set the reference prices and reference quantity outside the model?

All help is highly appreciated!
