2050 Energy Calculator

Resource: 2050 Energy Calculator

The 2050 Calculator allows users to create their own emissions reduction pathway, using scientific data to see the impacts. The Calculator is available in three versions to allow a range of audiences to explore how to best meet energy needs while reducing emissions: a simplified overview, a more detailed look at the issues, or a full Excel version for experts who want to look at the underpinning model.
While designed for the UK, the Energy Department there is now working with teams around the world to help them develop their own calculators, and is also building a Global Calculator to look at ways to reduce emissions worldwide.
