"GTAP-Energy in GAMS: The Dataset and Static Model"
by Rutherford, Thomas and Sergey Paltsev

The paper documents the energy-economy dataset GTAP-EG which is based on the general Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database and OECD International Energy Agency(IEA) statistics. The GTAP-EG dataset is developed in collaboration with the researchers
at Purdue University, who created a GEMPACK version of the energy dataset. In contrast to their work, the GTAP-EG is implemented in the GAMS programming language using a different calibration procedure. An illustrative static model in MPSGE syntax complementsfthe GTAP-EG. Having the dataset in GAMS is helpful for researchers because of its open architecture approach which permits to modify easily the dataset and the model for their own purposes. The document contains a description and directions for installing and using the GAMS-EG dataset. The paper also helps to quantify the extent to which the calibration method affects the data.
