Scientific and Economic Background on DICE models

DICE 2016

The DICE 2016R model is available in beta version with the GAMS code (Sept 30, 2016), click here.

An Excel version is available as well. Note that this is derived from the GAMS version and is not the authoritative version. It does not contain the optimization at present. Click here for the model.

This model is the background for the latest estimate of the social cost of carbon (SCC) as well as for projections and policy runs. The manuscript will be available in Fall 2016.

DICE 2013

The earlier version is DICE-2013R. 

The User's Manual is available, click here.

This can be run both as a GAMS program. The Excel version has not been corrected to the 2013R version. 

2. There are two GAMS versions of the 2013R model (for archival purposes, this is DICE2013Rv2_102213_vanilla_v24b.gms).

A. The "Vanilla" version can be run without any subroutines. It contains only the baseline and the optimal scenarios. It produces output which has the major variables of the model. For the Vanilla version, click here.

B. The other flavor is the "RockyRoad" version. This has six scenarios, which can be run in any combination. The RockyRoad version requires both a Mothership and the Satellites.

The Mothership and the Satellites are in the following zip folder, click here. For instructions on how to use, see the ReadMe file.
