This presentation introduces the 2050 Calculator, an interactive tool that allows experts and non-experts alike to explore different energy and emissions scenarios out to 2050. DECC developed the 2050 Calculator to model the UK, but its flexible structure can be modified to take into account structural differences between the UK and other economies. Already the 2050 Calculator has helped teams in China, South Korea and Taiwan adapt the methodology to fit their reality. This webinar outlines the calculator can be used to examine the trade-offs and different options associated with greenhouse gas mitigation, and provides an overview of how DECC is working with other countries to enable them to develop their own version of the calculator.
