Abstract

In this study we apply a multiplier decomposition methodology of a linear general equilibrium model based on the regional social accounting matrix to the Andalusian economy. The aim of this methodology is to separate the size of the different effects in terms of energy expenditure and total emissions generated by the whole productive system to satisfy the final demand of each branch of the Andalusian economy and the direct emissions generated to produce energy for each subsystem.
