Technology Evaluation with MARKAL


In this report, we deal with the assessment of energy technologies using the MARKAL model. Severals methods of evaluating the relative merits of technologies are reviewed, and a comprehensive approach is recommended, that is based on two complementary aspects of the MARKAL outputs: the primal results, which describe penetration values of technologies, and the dual results, which indicate the Marginal System Values of technologies. The approach is illustrated on the result of a sample run of MARKAL-QUÉBEC.
