A computer model of technology choice, energy use, and carbon emissions by the US pulp and paper industry can show the effect of climate change policies on the industry rate of technological improvement. An important feature of the model is its ability to track changes in energy efficiency through time and explore the dynamic changes of alternative policy scenarios. It focuses on implications of increases in the cost of carbon and investment incentives for the pulp and paper industry's energy and carbon emission profiles until the year 2020.
