This report describes the extensions to the "bottom-up" energy-systems ERIS (Energy Research and Investment Strategies) model carried out by the authors at IIASA-ECS for, among others, the EC-Sponsored SAPIENTIA and MINIMA-SUD projects. The original version of the ERIS model was developed as a joint effort between the Environmentally Compatible Energy Strategies (ECS) project at IIASA and the Energy Economics Group of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland during the EC-sponsored TEEM and SAPIENT projects, in which it was mainly used to examine issues related to the endogenization of mechanisms of technological change. The extension of the ERIS model developed at IIASA-ECS include: the implementation of a clusters approach to technology learning, the inclusion of emissions and marginal abatement curves for two main non-CO2 greenhouse gases (methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O)), the inclusion of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, the incorporation of a transportation sector with emphasis on the passenger car sub-sector, the inclusion of fuel production technologies (i.e. hydrogen, alcohol, Fischer-Tropsch liquids, etc.) as well as geological and terrestrial CO2 storage and a calibration to the year 2000 energy statistics.
