Baseline for the Global Energy and Climate Outlook

Abstract: 
This collection contains the economic Multi-Regional Input-Output tables used in the Global Energy and Climate Outlook (GECO) for the baseline scenario. The Baseline scenario represents a projection of the world economy with corresponding energy demand and GHG's emissions under the assumption that the energy and climate objectives of the NDCs are achieved. The procedure that was used to generate Baseline scenario is called PIRAMID which stands for: Platform to Integrate, Reconcile and Align Model-based Input-output Data. PIRAMID is a new methodology to project Multi-Regional Input-Output tables over time. This approach allows for integrating data from external models and databases.
