Title: Modeling Technological Change in Energy Systems : from optimization to agent-based simulation

Abstract: Operational optimization models are one of the main streams in modeling practices on energy systems. Agent-based modeling and simulations seems to be another rising stream in the field of modeling energy systems. In either optimization or agent-based modeling practices, technological change in energy systems is a very important and inevitable factor that modelers need to deal with. By introducing three modeling practices with a deliberately simplified energy system, this paper tries to explain how traditional optimization model, endogenous technological change optimization model, and agent-based model treat technological change differently and compares different philosophy underlying the three modeling practices and their advantages and disadvantages.
