e3-India: A state-level e3 model of India

E3-India is a dynamic macro-econometric simulation model, developed as a tool for state-level analysis in India.

It covers 28 states and four union territories of India.

The model was developed in partnership with the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) to enable policymakers and stakeholders to assess various policy impacts at a significantly higher geographical resolution than has previously been possible in India.

E3-India is free to download and use by the academic and nonprofit community under licence. Register your interest in using the model, here.

What is E3-India?

The model is similar in design to the E3ME model and features state-level implementation of the Future Technology Transfer (FTT) module, to capture the influences of new technologies in the power sector and on the wider economy and environment.

Designed to assess energy and climate policy in a highly empirical structure, the model combines an accounting framework with a set of parameters that have been estimated econometrically from a detailed time-series database.

Policies can be defined at state level and the model results show impacts in each state, including impacts on trade between states.
