The Base case projection includes the feedback effects of the economic losses and deaths due to climate change. These impacts reduce energy demand and thus, emissions. The Base case also includes increased air-conditioning (electric and non-energy) responses to accommodate the added heat loads on equipment and people. The electric load still increases substantially, but much of it comes from new renewable energy sources (using the Referent fuel share logic, but no mitigation policy). Compared to the Referent case, all the factors essentially balance out and the net effect on temperature is negligible.
