GTAP-Power Data Base: Version 11

Main Article Content

Maksym Chepeliev


This paper provides an overview of the GTAP-Power 11 Data Base, which covers 141 individual countries, 19 composite regions and 76 sectors, reporting data for five reference years – 2004, 2007, 2011, 2014 and 2017. The newly constructed database builds on the previous efforts, introducing several new features and updates. First, by extending the coverage across reference years, GTAP-Power 11 Data Base relies on the updated set of the levelized costs of electricity generation. Second, the database includes updates to the shares of transmission and distribution costs across countries. Finally, the newly constructed database includes complementary accounts of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. The GTAP-Power 11 Data Base is further used to explore the drivers behind changing emissions from electricity generation activity across countries and regions using the logarithmic mean Divisia index (LMDI) and decomposing the underlying drivers into activity, structure, and intensity effects.
