The EFFECT Model is an Excel-based, bottom-up, engineering style model designed to support open and transparent modeling and comparison of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions growth for a range of development scenarios. The EFFECT Model focuses on sectors that contribute to and are expected to experience rapid growth in emissions. The model was initially developed for work with the Government of India to support consensus building and planning in key sectors of the economy and to assess the impact of policy choices on GHG emission levels. It has since been used in a number of countries, including Brazil and Poland, to support similar objectives.



 



Tool Overview

"The Energy Forecasting Framework and Emissions Consensus Tool (EFFECT) is an open and transparent modeling tool used to forecast greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a range of development scenarios. It focuses on sectors that contribute to and are expected to experience a rapid growth in emissions. The model was initially developed by the World Bank while working with the Government of India on an analysis of their national energy plan. EFFECT has since been used in eleven countries, including Brazil, Poland, Georgia, Macedonia, Nigeria, and Vietnam.

EFFECT forecasts GHG emissions for given development scenarios or policy choices. In addition to forecasting GHG Emissions, EFFECT enables consensus building among disparate government departments, and forecasts energy balances and amounts of energy generating/consuming assets in a country or sector. EFFECT also produces results for individual sectors such as road transport, agriculture, power, industry, household and non-residential sectors."

"To facilitate broader dissemination and use of the EFFECT Model, an e-learning program has been developed for policymakers, planners, and modelers. It provides an introduction to low carbon development planning and includes 6 courses:

  • Overview
  • For Policymakers
  • The Power Sector
  • The Transport Sector
  • The Household Sector
  • The General Module"
