A multiple objective model to deal with economy-energy-environment interactions. (English) Zbl 1137.90657

Summary: An economy-energy-environment multiple objective model based on the linear structure of inter-industry production linkages is presented. Axes of evaluation consistent with sustainable energy strategies, economic growth, social welfare and environmental friendliness are explicitly considered. The aim of this study is to provide decision-makers with a comprehensive model which allows to assess environmental burdens (global warming potential and acidification potential) with respect to changes in economic activities consistent with distinct policy measures.
