What is it?
The Simulation and Analysis of the Energy Matrix (SAME) model is a computer tool developed by the Latin American Energy Organization (Olade), which allows the construction of different prospective scenarios for the energy sector for medium and long-term study horizons; through the use of technical coefficients, extracted from the National Energy Balance of a base year.
This tool is very versatile in the projection method, since it allows generating trend, evolutionary or rupture scenarios in a very agile way. Allowing to simulate policies of diversification of the matrix of final consumption, electricity generation and total energy supply.
Through SAME, the effect of climate change mitigation programs can be analyzed, such as: greater penetration of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures.
It provides as a parameter of comparison between the developed scenarios, various energy, economic and environmental indicators.
