Abstract

Many countries have been in transition from centrally-planned mode to a competitive market-oriented mode. In such transition, conflicts are emerging among the national and local governments, energy producers, environmental conservationists, energy producers, and energy consumers. Negotiations among these parties take place. In the area of energy and climate change, negotiation on capital investment, energy prices, electricity tariffs, rates of pollutant emission charges, carbon emission reduction quotas, and certified emission reductions become indicators. Involving many negotiators and multiple indicators, negotiation issues in energy-environmental systems in countries with economy in transition become complicated and time-consuming. Advanced planning methodologies and skilled resource persons in negotiation are badly needed for the negotiators to prepare good negotiation proposals. This research aims at simulating negotiation process in energy-environmental systems with computer models. A methodological framework termed Negotiation-coordination in Energy-Environmental Planning (NEEP) is established to analyze the complex relationships among the multiple actors, quantify the intricate trade-offs of the various indicators, and facilitate the process of negotiations. With an example of China, this book demonstrates how NEEP is designed, computerized, and applied in energy-environment negotiations in countries with economy in transition.
