Presumably if energy prices are rising people will demand less. Do you account for these dynamic feedbacks

There is no price elasticity function, which adjusts energy demands in response to prices in pathways. This is because the pathways are user led and the costs work, emissions and energy are shown as consequences of a users chosen pathway. Therefore, in a high-level way a user can decide to replicate demand side response by increasing the level of demand reduction through the user choices but we have not hard-wired this response, since the 2050 Calculator has no optimisation function.
