The use of the SIMA model within the energy modeling effort at IIASA reflects the desire to treat the special considerations of developing regions with as much care as possible. In particular, the treatment of economic profile and prospects of one developing country with this econometric model can lead towards a greater understanding of energy requirements in the face of alternative economic scenarios. The alternative paths selected for use with the SIMA model include a greater intensification of agriculture, increasing aid, and stepped-up investments and exports (to generate high economic growth). The SIMA model focuses on the central issues of capital availability and sources of export earnings for building up the domestic energy sector. Also considered explicitly are the uses of noncommercial energy and the extent and pace of rural electrification characteristic of developing economies.
