Version History - February 6, 2023

  • Bug fix
    • Correction to calculations for policy-driven amount of CCS

3.4.3 - January 23, 2023

  • Accuracy Improvements
    • BAU output for fuel-supplying ISIC codes is now based on fuel sales and price data from elsewhere in the model rather than taken as input data from I/O data sources, helping to ensure consistency of fuel revenue estimates across different parts of the model
    • BAU jobs and BAU employee compensation in fuel-supplying ISIC codes are now linked to the physical quantity of fuel produced, not revenue, to avoid unrealistic changes in BAU employment and BAU employee compensation when BAU projected fuel prices vary from year to year.
    • Change in employee compensation due to policies is now linked to changes in the physical quantity of fuel produced, not changes in revenue. (This was already true of jobs but, until now, not employee compensation.)
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed minor formula errors in trans/BNVP.
  • Data Updates
    • Updates in fuels/FPIEBP, fuels/PoFDCtAE, indust/BIFUbC, and indst/BPoIFUfE to fix crude oil fuel export issues.
