What is the Global Calculator?
The Global Calculator is a model of the world's energy, land and food systems that allows users to explore the options for reducing global emissions to 2050, and to see the climate consequences of these choices to 2100. It is a free, interactive and open-source tool that helps you to understand the link between our lifestyle, the energy we use, and our climate.

The Calculator shows that it is possible to prevent dangerous climate change and ensure people's living standards continue to improve in the future if we act now. For more information and to use the Calculator, visit

The Global Calculator has been built by an international team of experts led by the UK’s Department of Energy & Climate Change and Climate-KIC. Partners include the World Resources Institute, the Energy Research Institute of China and Imperial College London.
