Have you ever thought about what you would do to tackle climate change on a global scale? Would you invest more in renewable energy? Add a carbon tax? Slow population growth?
Now you can test your theories to find what really works to combat global warming. Climate Interactive’s long-awaited climate and energy policy and investment simulator, En-ROADS, is now freely available to the public in beta form. En-ROADS has been calibrated to align with the top energy models in the world and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) latest assessment report (AR5). Become a policy analyst and explore different scenarios in energy efficiency, agriculture, R&D, fuel mix, economic growth, and more to find out how to lead the world to a clean energy future.
Along with En-ROADS, we are releasing a new climate and energy simulation exercise, World Energy. World Energy is a group role-playing simulation game where participants play business, civil society, and government leaders trying to limit climate change to 2 degrees Celsius.
In the exercise, participants negotiate and try out different measures like subsidies, carbon pricing, or energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Proposals are then tested using En-ROADS, which provides participants science-based feedback on their policy and investment proposals.
En-ROADS and World Energy are free and open to the public – run the simulation in your classroom, workplace, or community!
