As part of a project to assess the value of new energy technologies, an international group of researchers created a linear-programming model of national energy systems. This model, MARKAL, is driven by useful energy demands, optimizes over several time periods collectively, and allows multiobjective analyses to be performed quite easily. We describe here the technical structure of the model, defining the functions determined when satisfying the model's relations and the parameters that must be supplied to give the model content.
