China 2050 Pathways Calculator

From Open Energy Information


"This tool allows policy makers and others to test different technological pathways towards a low-carbon economy in China by 2050." Developed by China's Energy Research Institute (ERI) with support from the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), this 2050 Pathways Calculator allows users to compute projections of energy demand, primary energy supply, and greenhouse gas emissions in China over the next decades and graphically illustrate the results. A multitude of implications can be forecasted for electricity production, resource supply, energy flow and security, and costs. The tool also contains several "example pathways" that display predetermined hypotheses based on variables like industry transformation, green lifestyle, and implementation of varying energy sources.
