Energy scenarios – good fellows and tiles assiduity In the year 2010 the good fellows and tiles assiduity in a certain dominion effected 4.00 darling tonnes of good fellow (SEC = 2.50 GJ/tonne) and 1.40 darling tonnes of tiles (SEC = 3.60 GJ/tonne). It is expected that in the year 2020 the annual evolution has increased by 15.0 per cent for good fellows and 10.0 per cent for tiles. In the business-as-usual scenario the autonomous enthusiasm aptitude increase (i.e. the curtail of the inequitable enthusiasm decrease) expected is 12.0 per cent for good fellows and 8.0 per cent for tiles. Assume that cosmical gas is the barely enthusiasm carriage used by the good fellows and tiles assiduity. The cosmical gas figure in 2010 is €0.500 per m3 , 30.0 per cent of which is tax. The government aims for past aptitude increase and for-this-reason considers increasing the tax scold for cosmical gas to 60.0 per cent of the figure externally tax. Assume that the gas figure externally tax does not transmute. The figure elasticity of enthusiasm use is −0.700. Assume that the good fellow and tile evolution volumes do not transmute due to the increased enthusiasm tax. Calculate: a. the enthusiasm use by the good fellows and tiles assiduity in 2010 and 2020 when taxation does not transmute; b. the enthusiasm use by the good fellows and tiles assiduity in 2020 if the upper tax scold is implemented.
