The library contains a wealth of information on the circular economy for use by policy makers and analysts conducting impact assessments. For more information on impact assessments and the EU's Better Regulation Agenda, please click here.
"E3MG is a sectoral econometric model for 20 world regions that has been developed with the intention of analyzing long-term energy and environment interactions with the global economy and assessing short and long-term impacts. The model consists of an in-depth treatment of changes in the input-output structure of the economy over the forecast period and incorporates the effects of technological change, relative price movements and changes in the composition of each industry’s output."
"EU-Rotate_N is a dynamic, process-based simulation model for crop rotations including field vegetables, simulating water, carbon and nitrogen cycles in soil and crop and their combined impact on crop growth and yield."
"GEM-CCGT is a general equilibrium model designed for analysing the effects of multilateral agreements on climate change and trade. As a general equilibrium model, it implies that resources are allocated efficiently (all the markets of an economy are in equilibrium). The model is mainly used for: impact analysis of current and future trade agreements; impact analysis of greenhouse gas abatement strategies under the Kyoto Protocol; impact analysis of the interaction between trade and environmental policies."
"LEAP is a software tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment developed at the Stockholm Environment Institute. LEAP has been adopted by hundreds of organizations in more than 150 countries worldwide."
"MONICA is a dynamic, process-based simulation model for agro ecosystems, simulating water, carbon and nitrogen cycles in soil and crop and their combined impact on crop growth and yield. MONICA calculates a large number of state variables on a daily basis using a handful of weather and site information."
"N-Vino is a dynamic, process-based simulation model for viticulture, simulating water and nitrogen cycles in soil and crop and their combined impact on crop growth and yield. NVino calculates a large number of state variables on a daily basis using a handful of weather and site information."
"N-LES is an empirical model for calculation of annual values of root zone nitrogen leaching. The model comprises a combination of additive and multiplicative effects. N-LES was developed on 600 observations of annual leaching of nitrogen from the root zone from both experimental fields and fields in normal agricultural production in Denmark."
"QUEST 2 is a dynamic macro-economic model of the world economy. It is designed to analyse the economies in the member states of the European Union and their interactions with the rest of the world, especially with the US and Japan."
