Models, tools, and data

Research models, tools, and data of the Energy, Climate, and Environment Program.


A modeling framework for medium- to long-term energy system planning, energy policy analysis, and scenario development More

The GAINS Model

A scientific tool to combat air pollution and climate change simultaneously More

SSP Scenario Database

The Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) will be used alongside the Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) to analyze the feedbacks between climate change and socioeconomic factors, such as world population growth, economic development and technological progress. IIASA began work in 2011 on quantifying one of the five SSPs. The Energy Program has spearheaded the cross-program collaboration with the Population and Ecosystem Services Management programs. More
