The Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) is an open-source model for estimating the environmental, economic, and human health impacts of hundreds of climate and energy policies. EPS offers unparalleled accessibility to the model through an easy-to-use web interface that allows non-technical users to model their own policy scenarios. In partnership with Energy Innovation, RMI is developing state-level versions of the EPS to make robust modeling tools and insights freely available to a diverse group of stakeholders including advocates, policymakers, and researchers.
In each state where the EPS becomes available, RMI and Energy Innovation publish insights and conduct stakeholder engagement to support use of the tool and drive focus on the highest impact policies that can bring emissions down in line with limiting atmospheric warming to 1.5°C. To date, the EPS is available in five states.
