The Energy Research Office (EPE) provides to the market and society in general a new tool to calculate the impact of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) on the basis of scenarios that can be constructed taking into account the supply and demand of energy. The 2050 Calculator was launched this month during COP 22 in Marrakesh and was developed by EPE in partnership with DECC / UK and with COPPE / UFRJ collaboration.
In December 2015, during COP21 (21st Conference of the Parties) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Brazil undertook to reduce GHG emissions by 37% over 2005 levels and as a subsequent indicative contribution, to reduce GHG emissions by 43% by 2030 on the same basis of comparison.
With the calculator it is possible to simulate scenarios choosing the source that will be used to generate energy for a given demand, and determining the quality of the demand that it is intended to achieve.
