The Macroeconomic Impact of LNG Exports: Integrating the GPCM® Natural Gas Model and the PI+® Regional Model

This study was an integrated effort between RBAC and REMI to display how incorporating two complimentary modeling tools can create a more complete comprehension of the topic being analyzed. The REMI PI+ and RBAC GPCM models were combined to examine the macroeconomic impact of liquefied natural gas exports as an example for the benefits of using multiple models to improve the impacts and forecasts of the two. Policy decisions for both the private industry and policymakers should come down to multifaceted considerations, and they should consider environmental and other issues beyond purely economic ones.
