Energy Innovation has developed an Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) model for Canada (including a regional Alberta version), China, India, Mexico, Indonesia, Poland, Saudi Arabia, and the United States — with more to come. Together, these countries represent 54 percent of global emissions.
The EPS identifies policies to achieve policymakers’ goals and recommend the most effective policies, as well as evaluate the impacts of policy or program announcements. Top publications and selected media coverage of EPS-driven research broken down by national and sub-national region is detailed below.
