En-ROADS Climate Change Simulation Challenge 2022

Main content start

What will it take to limit global warming to below 2°C or even 1.5°C? Energy@Stanford & SLAC 2022 participants will work together to tackle this important question. The teamwork sessions are planned to be in-person, while En-ROADS class events are planned to be remote.

Using the En-ROADS simulator, students will work in small teams to develop a scenario that limits global warming, preserves and creates a healthy economy, promotes equity and a just transition, and protects the environment. En-ROADS is a policy simulation model developed by Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, and MIT Sloan that allows users to explore the likely consequences of energy, economic growth, land use, and other policies and uncertainties.

Special thanks to Drew Jones and Janet Chikofsky for hosting the En-ROADS simulation.
