Climate Action Tracker – Decarbonisation Module

Development of a database for cross-sector decarbonisation indicators across 30 countries.


In a consortium with Climate Analytics and Ecofys, NewClimate Institute contributes to the “Climate Action Tracker” (CAT) Data Portal, which is a database of decarbonisation indicators on sector- and country-level for up to 30 countries.

Tasks under this work include (a) maintaining, regularly updating and expanding the database and performing the calculations and data mining necessary to get as much country/sector-level detail as possible, (b) performing quantitative analysis based on the decarbonisation indicators in the form of short reports and memos focusing on particular sectors, and (c) developing a simplified model for estimating country’s sectoral emission pathways based on the notion that decarbonisation indicators are well suited for use in policy analysis.
