Dual fuel-reporting
Dear Sara,

Without some help from the user, such a reporting is a bit error-prone in TIMES. This is because TIMES does not really know which processes are electricity producing processes, and which are not. That's why I have suggested to Ken a long time ago that ANSWER could provide some report specification parameters as well, which could be used to define some custom reports.

However, I have implemented for myself such an electricity supply reporting parameter, but it depends on certain simplifying assumptions: It considers all normal processes, which have any electricity output commodity in the Primary Group and do not have any electricity commodities as inputs, as electricity production technologies. In addition, it includes any electricity trade in the supply. In this way I get the full electricity supply by energy source reported in my results.

I could, of course, add this kind of a reporting parameter quite easily also to the ANSWER reporting routine, if you can contact Ken and will convince him of the usefulness of such a reporting parameter for ANSWER.  Embarrassed
