We build reliable, sector-by-sector, year-by-year energy system blueprints – Deep Decarbonization Pathways – for reducing emissions by at least 80% by 2050, while maintaining a thriving economy. Our tools, data and analysis are used at the national, state and city level, where we empower agencies, regulators and other stakeholders to take effective action against climate change.
We help turn climate goals into effective climate plans.
Our modelling software, data, methods and assumptions are open-source and open to independent verification. We believe transparency is a fundamental requirement for building consensus on long-term decarbonization strategies, and that verifiable data enables change. USDDPP provides the concrete data and analytical tools stakeholders need to break the climate change impasse.
In additional to our landmark national reports, EnergyPATHWAYS models and Deep Decarbonization Pathways (DDP) analysis are currently supporting energy transition initiatives in California, New York and Washington state. We will be announcing additional regional DDP collaborations between USDDPP, local agencies and energy and business stakeholders soon.
Our EnergyPATHWAYS software platform models the complete energy production, consumption, delivery and storage system across all sectors of the energy economy at hourly resolution. Our data and analysis allows responsible agencies, regional and national energy providers, regulators, and other stakeholders to create 2050 decarbonization strategies that they know will work.
USDDPP is not aligned with any ideology or political party on the right or the left, nor are we aligned with any incumbent non-governmental organization (NGO). We are an independent, science-driven, data-based organization dedicated to helping agencies, regulators and other climate stakeholders create and implement practical and effective decarbonization solutions.
