|The ACEGES: Supporting Energy Policy|
ACEGES is an agent-based model for exploratory energy policy by means of controlled computational experiments. ACEGES is designed to be the foundation for large custom-purpose simulations of the global energy system. The full version of the ACEGES is based on i) the MASON library, ii) the R Project for statistical computing, iii) the ECJ, which is an evolutionary computation system written in Java, and iv) the GAMLSS framework. The main authors of the ACEGES software are:
ACEGES Stands for Agent-based Computational
Economics of the Global Energy System. For more information, please contact Dr. Vlasios

See the ACEGES manual for the basic functionalities of the ACEGES 1.0. The methodological framework is discussed in Voudouris (2011) by extending Voudouris (2010). Jefferson and Voudouris (2011) discuss how the ACEGES decision-support tool can be used for Energy Scenarios satisfying the generative explanation. The ACEGES model has been used for the contribution to the House of Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee (inquiry into The UK's Energy Supply: Security or Independence? ) by Dr. Vlasios Voudouris.
