Companion Market Model (CMM)

logo - INL - Idaho National Laboratory
Abstract: The companion Market Model is a simulation model that projects the volume and price dynamics between the biomass resource base (supply) and different demand industries including intermediate processing (i.e., mobilization) and end-use markets (traditional, companion, and biofuels). This allows to model resource mobilization and price developments over time given varying levels of companion and biofuel market growth.
Model/Tool Platform:
Powersim
General Modeling Type:
Hybrid / other: Multi-Market Dynamic (with feedback)
Primary analytical purpose:
Cross-sector analysis: Integrative scenario assessment of the interactions across parts of the supply chain or multiple market sectors.
Secondary analytical purpose:
Transitions: Integrative scenario assessment of how supply chains or full market sectors transition overtime.
