With these model outputs we can calculate the costs of different emission standards and of different policies to attain specified standards over the next 25 years. The model deals only with categories of emitters and generic categories of emission standards rather than specifying the size, spatial location, and emissions standards of specific sources. Consequently, the model cannot be used to analyze the cost of different ambient air quality standards or the cost of different means for achieving specified ambient standards: our policy simulations ignore ambient air quality constraints and focus only on the achievement of emission standards.

PJ/tonne). , PJ of coal, gas, or electricity per PJ total energy input). Another example can be given in terms of transport, where the Akj represent different levels of transport activities, the Tmkj represent different vehicle types or modes, and the Fmkj represent fuel efficiencies. With this notation, the following energy quantities can be defined: Eimkj= total amount of energy type i used by technology m for activity k in sector j 7 Additional discussion of the model can be found in Cofala (1985) and Cofala et al (1990).
