This Working Paper forms part of the TPA’s assessment of evidence for a rebound effect from improved energy efficiency.

Technical Report 4: Computable General Equilibrium Modelling focuses upon quantitative estimates of the economy-wide rebound effect available from Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models of the macro-economy. In adding to summarising and evaluating particular studies, the report aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses of this approach and to make the issues accessible to a non-technical audience.
