This e-learning course has six modules that can be taken together or separately. They introduce you to climate change mitigation, explore the concepts surrounding low carbon development planning on an economy-wide basis and take a detailed look at what this means in the power and transport sectors and for household electricity use. For those interested in modeling, the course discusses the development of reference and low carbon scenarios out to 2030 and beyond, the stakeholders that need to be involved and the data that is required to develop credible projections. A downloadable copy of the EFFECT model (Energy Forecasting Framework and Emissions Consensus Tool), developed initially for low carbon modeling work in India and used in a number of other countries since, is provided. The course also provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the EFFECT model.
