Whom is EUCalc for?
EUCalcs’ primary academic output is the EUCalc model which intends to fill the gap between integrated climate-energy-economy models and the practical needs of decision-makers. For more details on the research process please refer to our Research Approach page or consult the Research Deliverables. A number of academic articles were published in various academic journals and research data is openly available. Presentations at scientific conferences are available as videos.
For policy-makers, innovators and investors
The EUCalc’s model outputs can be accessed via the Transition Pathways Explorer or the My Europe in 2050 web applications. Users can create their own pathways to a low-carbon future in real-time. The tools can help policy makers in the EU27 + UK and Switzerland explore, together with other stkeholders, the routes they can take to delivering climate protection, whilst securing energy and other important policy priorities. Nine policy briefs summarising key findings for a fair and just net-zero emissions Europe by 2050 are also made available.
For university students and educational purposes
EUCalc produced a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) module ‘EUCalc – Pathway Finder to a low-carbon EU-society’ aiming at attendees to achieve a higher understanding of viable transition paths and its trade-offs to a low-carbon society in Europe. It is presented as ‘stand-alone’ education element. The My Europe in 2050 is targeted to a non-expert target group (no business- or policy related training is needed) to build their own net-zero pathway for Europe and can therefore be used for educational purposes. The EUCalc cartoons are aimed at addressing the most relevant questions of potential users of the Transition Pathways Explorer and the MyEurope 2050 tool.
