The En-ROADS simulator helps in understanding how we can achieve our climate goals through changes in energy, land use, consumption, agriculture, and other policies.
It shows how changes in GDP, energy efficiency, technological innovation, and carbon price influence carbon emissions and global temperature.
The En-ROADS simulator is available in many languages.
It is very good for lovers of math, statistics, and analysis.
The En-ROADS online simulator comes with a user guide which should be studied and used by the educator before trying it out with the students. There are also video illustrations, all under the help section.
