Task 5: Modeling Scenarios

What are the potential economic, environmental and societal consequences of climate policies for Ohio?

Building on information gathered from Tasks 1, 2 and 4, a team from The Ohio State University and Millennium Institute developed a “dynamic energy-economic policy (DEEPS) simulation tool” that can analyze the impacts of proposed carbon and energy policies and GHG emission reduction scenarios. This tool builds upon the T21-Ohio model developed by OSU with funding from the U.S. EPA, which utilizes an approach called system dynamics to provide a comprehensive accounting of economic, environmental and social impacts.
