LAKSHMANAN AND SAM RATICK Environmental quality and energy costs in a region have become important factors in regional location of industries and households. Yet most current analyses of regional locations of firms and households (including SEAS) fail to incorporate them. We believe that environmental and energy factors need to be and can be incorporated in the analysis of regional economic growth. When such a regional module is incorporated in SEAS, the regional impacts estimated will provide some indication of where beneficial and adverse effects occur, both in the national and regional economies.
In the BOM scenario, output and capital investments are heavier in electric utilities and other direct related energy sectors. 2 percent per year in 1985-2000 in the BOM scenario. In both 1985 and 2000, half the investments in the utilities in BOM are for nuclear plants. By contrast, FTF investment is focused on conservation - household appliances (energy-saving devices), stones and clay products (insulation), and service industry machinery. The rapid growth in "new construction" (Sector 18) capital purchases reflects the growth in national gas sector.
This implies that each sector has only one average technique at its disposal. However, in practice often a choice can be made out of different production processes, implying substitution between different inputs. The choice of inputs is then determined by relative prices. The possibility of variable technical coefficients will be described in section 3. Energy analysis makes it desirable to identify and separate the energy sectors in the input-output table as far as possible. , coal equivalents or joules.
