Electricity Markets Analysis (EMA) Model
Abstract EMA is a dynamic linear-programming model of U.S. wholesale electricity markets designed to examine how mid- to long-term energy and environmental policies will influence electricity supply decisions, electricity generation costs, and electricity prices.  +
DIA/Approach The EMA model determines least-cost method
The EMA model determines least-cost methods for meeting electricity demand on a seasonal and time-of-day basis, while considering factors such as growth in demand, peak demands, and limits on emissions. Markets for electric power in EMA are modeled along geographic lines as distinct markets with specific characteristics and interregional electricity transmission capabilities. The EMA model can estimate impacts associated with a variety of policies related to the generation mix, limits on criteria pollutants, and cap-and-trade systems to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Also, it can be linked to the RTI ADAGE economic model. The model aggregates data in 13 distinct electricity markets across the United States.
