En-ROADS is a transparent, freely-available policy simulation model that provides policymakers, educators, businesses, the media, and the public with the ability to explore, for themselves, the likely consequences of energy, economic growth, land use, and other policies and uncertainties, with the goal of improving their understanding. The simulation, developed by Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, and MIT Sloan, runs on an ordinary laptop in a fraction of a second, is available online, offers an intuitive interface, has been carefully grounded in the best available science, and has been calibrated against a wide range of existing integrated assessment, climate and energy models.
A wide range of people have used En-ROADS, including members of the U.S. Congress, HSBC bank, the Hewlett Foundation, local community groups, the UN Secretary-General’s Office, university professors around the world, leading science educator Bill Nye, and many others.
En-ROADS is best used as part of one of our two facilitated group learning experiences: the En-ROADS Climate Workshop and the Climate Action Simulation.
All are welcome and encouraged to join our free online trainings to learn more about the science behind the simulator and event facilitation.
