region definitions that are sector-specific - Anna (AKR) - 19-03-2019

Hi, I have a question around the use of region definitions that are sector-specific.  If I define the regions like below & I define RSD sector for each country (“AT”, …., “UK”) and ELC sector for each region (REG1, REG2).  Do I have to make a trade-scenario file and define trades-process for ELC that is produced in “REG1” and used in “AT” (both belong to the same region REG1/EREG1). (I assume you have to but would be so great if I didn’t have to).   ~BookRegions_Map BookName      Region REG1               REG1 REG2               REG2 EREG1             AT                          DE                          FR                          ES EREG2             IT                          BE                          NL                          UK All the best Anna

I am glad you are trying this approach - to have sector-specific region definition. You surely need to create trade processes to carry (I guess) electricity from EREG1 regions to REG1. And I would suggest you put some restrictions on the shares of import from the electricity regions into REG1/REG2. We have several different levels of regions within USA in our FACETS model: http://facets-model.com/multiregion

Thank you for quick response. One clarification question. If I want the electricity (ELC) produced in region REG1 to be available for all countries in region EREG1. Do I then define one trade-process between REG1 and ERGE1, or do I need to define a trade process for each connection, i.e. REG1-AT, REG1-DE, REG1-FR and REG1-ES. /Anna

EREG1/2 have no existence in the model. They only exist in VEDA, to help you create data in a compact way. So, the links have to be among the regions in the Region column of your table. But you could create a market instead of individual links, simply by putting a instead of "1" in the trade matrix.

Thank you, could you possible provide an example (an excel-file) on how such trade could look like. Thank you in advance /A
