If you choose to enter a time series as an Exponential Growth, you must specify a Base value and a Multiplier parameter, representing an annual growth (or decay). This type of time series is commonly used to specify tariffs.

An amount which multiplies the previous year’s value in each year. A value of 1.05 represents 5% annual growth, while a value of 0.95 represents a 5% decline. The Multiplier parameter must be positive, and no greater than 2.

For a Floor, the Multiplier indicates how fast the curve converges to the specified Floor. A lower value will create a steep decline towards the Floor in the early years.

Default: 1.0.

See Floor and Multiplier.

Specifies a particular period when the Base value should apply. This can be a year, a quarter, a month, or even a fully-qualified date.

Default: Y0.

Options

Determines what point in the Base Period or Period the Base value or corresponding values is/are associated with.

Default: End for demand-related inputs, but Beginning for tariffs and cost trends.
