In order to find a balanced setup of the future energy system ETM relies on some exogenous inputs. Next to describing parameters regarding assumed costs and efficiencies for individual technologies, also the development of relevant drivers for the energy demand are considered as input for the model. The following table outlines the relevant drivers:

GDPP GDP per capita
GDPPHOU GDP per household
HOU Number of households
PAGR Value Added Agriculture
PCHEM Value Added Chemical sector
PISNF Value Added Iron and Steel and Non Ferrous metals
POEI Value Added Other Energy Intensive industries
POI Value Added Other Industries
POP Population
PSER Value Added Service sector
