  • Running Short of Tailwinds for the Economy 22 november, 2023
    Strangely enough, the economy seems to move from tailwind to tailwind, as new resources are discovered, as population expands, and as central banks figure out new ways to fix the economy. In this post, I will describe some tailwinds affecting the economy. Many of these have recently lost their value or are likely to lose […]
  • By marromai: Post Peak Everything 14 november, 2023
    Today’s guest post by German speaking marromai contemplates the implications of peak everything caused by energy depletion and concludes the coming collapse will be rapid, harsh, and permanent. Other essays by marromai can be found here. Following is an edited excerpt from “A Book for no One” by Stefan Gruber that discusses the so called […]
  • Unpave low traffic roads to save energy and money 22 november, 2023
    Preface. The U.S. has 4.1 million miles of roads (1.9 million paved, 2.2 million gravel). About 3 million miles of roads have less than 2,000 vehicles a day, less than 15% of all traffic. The paved portion of these low-volume … Continue reading →

Modelling energy transition risk: The impact of declining energy return on investment (EROI)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

En artikel ur Ecological Economics som behandlar hur en modell kan se ut som försöker ta hänsyn till minskande EROI och vilka effekter detta kan ha. En tung artikel med mycket matematik.

Från Abstraktet:

This paper develops a model (TranSim) which can simulate the economic and financial implications of an energy technology transition involving a reduction in EROI, by combining the stock-flow consistent (SFC) approach with an input-output (IO) model.

The TranSim model has the following key features. First, it includes three firm sectors, that produce energy, capital, and other (non-energy, non-capital) goods. Second, an IO model and an Almost Ideal Demand System are integrated into the SFC model. Third, capital vintages have embedded levels of labour productivity and intermediate good requirements that depend on the economic conditions in the period the vintage was produced.
Simulations are characterised by an initial increase in output (due to higher investment), followed by periods of recession and below trend growth (due to price inflation and changes to the functional income distribution). The negative effects associated with the transition – recession, stagnation, stagflation, increasing inequality and asset stranding – are positively related to the capital intensity of green energy production and reductions in EROI.
