Japan 2050 Low Carbon Navigator: Japanese version of the UK 2050 Pathways Calculator

The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) jointly developed the Japan 2050 Low Carbon Navigator, an energy system simulation tool. This tool, developed in both a detailed Excel model (http://www.2050‐low‐carbon‐navi.jp/web/en/) and an interactive web tool (http://www.en‐2050‐low‐carbon‐navi.jp/) can be downloadable for free. This handy-to-communication tool can help address energy supply meeting the demand while contributing to low carbon emissions.

In this presentation, I explained how the tool was developed, the team and working mechanism, the model structure and scenario setting, what the major differences from the UK 2050 Pathways Calculator, how the tool was launched and are being used.

This presentation was given at the International Conference on 2050 Calculator, Feb. 10-12th., 2015, Taipei, Taiwan.
