- A Dynamic Energy System Optimization Model is described that can analyze optimal allocation of exhaustible energy resources over time. It is a multi-period representation of the nation's energy supply and utilization system that incorporates cost and time elements associated with new capital facilities, the discount rate, internal selection of new energy technologies, and internal determination of primary energy resource allocation over time. Two demonstration applications of a single-period energy model are also presented. The first estimates benefit/cost ratios for Federal R and D investment in high-Btu coal-gasification technology. The second evaluates the economic impact of a sulfur dioxide emission constraint in certain end uses.
