Integrated Assessment Models as a platform of the policy and technology assessments
Integrated assessment models (IAMs) have been developed since 1990s as a powerful tool for this subject. However,
Economic models and technology assessments deal with near future (until 2020) while existing IAMs mainly talk about near 2100.
Economic models and technology assessments mainly analyze country level while existing IAMs mainly aggregate the world into 10-15 regions.
Globalization, civilization, penetration of IT, industrial structure changes etc. are not well discussed in the global environmental context.

Activities in Model Development WG
GTAP (Purdue Univ.) incorporates more than 60 regions and sectors and is still being expanded.
GTAP is designed to assess the international trade and production impacts of various policy options.
GTAP-EG includes energy flow subsystems.
GTAP provides comprehensive and consistent world economic data base.
In Phoenix Project,
We aim at the assessments of the certain technologies such as energy conversion technologies, carbon capture options, biomass production and utilization, etc.
Dynamic model simulation is also needed.
We impose the bottoming up technology model into the GTAP model simplifying the frame, if necessary.

Importance of narrative stories
Many important “descriptive” factors are essential in the global warming issues.
IPCC-SRES emphasized the role of “narrative” story-lines.
Structure analysis and the Technological Forecasting methods will provide useful information to construct compatible stories.
Extracting consistent stories from the judgments of experts – Cross Impact Method is applicable.
Structure Analysis for the Narrative Scenario Generation

Development of scenarios (tentative) A1 assumptions
In the A1 case with high per-capita income and low population growth, internet diffuses in all regions and the global unified market appears. Regional culture tends to converge.
The long term investments for more than 30 years become difficult and thus nuclear power stations do not increase.
The self-sufficient supply and the diversification of primary energy sources do not progress so rapid.
Thanks to the diffusion of internet and high income, environmental education become familiar and environmental costs are socially accepted well.
People enjoy the high level consumption.
Development of scenarios (tentative) A2 assumptions
A2 case with high population growth and lower income suggests the relatively conservative world.
Two possibilities: (1) The traditional culture and customs dominate the society. (2) Globalization progresses like A1.
In case (1), regional block economy will appear. Long term investments become difficult and thus nuclear power may not increase.
In the latter case, where the global unified market appears, nuclear power stations are socially accepted as well as the long term investment.
Diversification of primary energy sources will progress.
Internet which promotes environmental education and environmental cost acceptance diffuses in both cases.
Development of scenarios (tentative) B1 assumptions
Internet diffuses in all regions and global unified market is founded like A1 case.
Environmental education, utilization of renewables and material recycling, and the acceptance of environmental costs are well recognized.
The regional traditions and cultures are regarded more important than A1 case due to the environmental education.
Globalization of economy and localization of culture appear simultaneously.
The latter promotes the self-sufficient supply and the diversification of primary energy sources especially in REF and Asia.
Nuclear power will be also accepted in these regions.
Long term investments will have few difficulties in OECD, REF and Asia.
Development of scenarios (tentative) B2 assumptions
Regional cultures tend to converge like A1 case.
Global unified economy also appears.
Environmental education becomes common and the internet diffuses.
Renewables are also well utilized as the environmental costs are widely recognized.
Nuclear power will not increase so much although the society accepts the long term investments.
Tendency towards the self sufficient supply and the diversification of primary energy sources will not progress so much.
Assessments of global warming impacts
Phoenix Project does not have global environment monitoring facilities.
2. Phoenix is compiling data and statistics on the impacts and aims to extract the key information according to the suggestions of the experts.
3. Cooperation with other institutes is mostly essential.
3. GIS plays a key role.

Integration of Assessment Modules
Integrated assessment incorporates:
Uncertainties on climate change, global and regional warming impacts, social and economic context, technological development, etc.
Long term views, Middle term strategies and Short term actions
- Scientific knowledge and decision making process
The changes of the energy supply-demand systems, industry structure changes and the international industry allocation scenarios will provide the basic information to assess the policy measures.
The outcomes of the project will give the helpful information on the energy technology development strategies.
The most preferable burden sharing scenario on the carbon emission reduction can be generated.
Industry policies on the R&D on the energy and environmental technologies, technology transfer, and other industry strategies can be assessed under the global warming mitigation policies.
