NewClimate Institute develops and applies online and spreadsheet-based tools to support analysis on climate and development. These tools are a result of in-depth scientific research and many NewClimate publications build on them. Browse our library and contact us if you want to know more about any of the tools.

COMPASS toolbox:

CLIMTRADE – Economic impacts of climate regulation in trade - CLIMTRADE estimates economic impacts associated with carbon border adjustments or environmentally conscious preferential trade agreements.
SCREEN (Sustainable development and climate action green recovery screening tool) - The SCREEN tool helps identify and analyse green recovery measures that can effectively cater to the distinct recovery needs and development priorities of developing countries.
TRACE (Transport sector climate action co-benefit evaluation tool) - The Transport sector climate action co-benefits evaluation tool (TRACE) is an Excel-based model to support quantitative evaluation of selected non-climate impacts from decarbonising the urban transport sector.
Climate Action Aggregation Tool (CAAT) - The ICAT Climate Action Aggregation Tool (CAAT) is an Excel-based tool to aggregate non-state actors’ climate policy efforts.
Policy impact assessment tool (RE) - This shell tool allows the user to project the impact of variable renewable energy (VRE) policies based on a s-curve modelling logic.
Policy impact assessment tool (EV) - This shell tool allows the user to project the impact of electric vehicle (EV) policies based on an s-curve modelling logic.
PROSPECTS+ - PROSPECTS is a sector-level, bottom-up Excel tool which uses decarbonisation relevant activity and intensity indicators to track and project overall and sectoral GHG emissions trends.
AIRPOLIM-ES (Air Pollution Impact Model for Electricity Supply) - The health impact model uses an accessible methodology for quantifying the health impacts of air pollution from different sources of electricity generation and other fuel combustion
EIM-ES (Economic Impact Model for Electricity Supply) - The EIM-ES quantifies country-level employment and wider economic impacts of different future scenarios for the development of capacity and generation in the electricity sector
SCAN tool - The SDG Climate Action Nexus tool (SCAN-tool) provides high-level guidance on how climate mitigation actions can impact the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Further tools:

Actor and Policy Mapping Tool - The Actor and Policy Mapping Tool enables users to map actors, policies, and policy planning processes in a structured and transparent manner.
Carbon offset credit supply potential tools - A series of database tools to quantify the potential supply of offset credits from leading programmes under a range of scenarios.
Investment Gap Tool - The Investment Gap Tool is an Excel tool that calculates historical investments and future investment needs in electricity generation capacity on a country basis.
Climate Opportunity Dashboard - The Climate Opportunity 2030 dashboard provides an interface to interactively compare scenarios for different co-benefits of climate action.
