Economics and Cost Analysis Support
EMPAX-CGE is a regional CGE economic model designed to estimate
regional macroeconomic impacts of environmental regulations on the
U.S. economy. Many major regulations directly affect a large number
of industries and/or substantially impact markets for key factors
of production. In either case, there may be substantial indirect
impacts resulting from changes in production, input use, income,
and consumption patterns for directly affected markets. EMPAX-CGE
offers the ability to trace economic impacts resulting from policies
such as large-scale environmental regulations as the impacts are
transmitted throughout the economy. This type of model provides
critical insight to policymakers evaluating the magnitude and distribution
of costs associated with environmental policies.
On this page EPA provides the source code for the model and a brief discussion of construction of EMPAX-CGE data files. EPA will not be able to provide any support for any use of the model.
