The En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator

En-ROADS is a global climate simulator that allows users such as policymakers, educators, businesses, the media and the public, to explore the impact that dozens of policies—such as electrifying transport, pricing carbon, and improving agricultural practices—have on hundreds of factors like energy prices, temperature, air quality, and sea level rise.

En-ROADS is a system dynamics model carefully grounded in the best available science, and has been calibrated against a wide range of existing integrated assessment, climate, and energy models. En-ROADS runs on an ordinary laptop in a fraction of a second, is freely available online, offers an intuitive user-friendly interface, and is available in over a dozen languages.

En-ROADS helps people make connections between things they care about and the possibilities available to help ensure a resilient future. Users can quickly see the long-term effects of the global climate policies and actions they imagine.

The goal? To break through the noise and equip elected officials, business leaders, and others with the knowledge they need to implement equitable and high-leverage climate solutions. You can learn more about the science behind the simulator here.

En-ROADS can be used individually online, but it is most often used as part of a facilitated group learning experiences: the En-ROADS Climate Workshop, the Climate Action Simulation game, or the En-ROADS Guided Assignment. These interactive events help participants gain key insights from the simulator, adopt new perspectives, and build grounded hope in a fun and engaging format. These experiences can be offered either in-person or via online platforms, and all materials are free.

Join the online trainings to learn more about En-ROADS, its related experiences, and more. The trainings cover: climate and energy system dynamics, interdisciplinary climate solutions, advanced facilitation tips, and more.
