To all state and local governments looking to generate more clean energy and slash carbon emissions: the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is here to help. DOE kicked off 2022 by launching a groundbreaking Scenario Planner tool within the State and Local Planning for Energy (SLOPE) Platform, a free, easy-to-use, online resource that supports data-driven state and local energy planning.
The new Scenario Planner allows users to compare the projected impacts of different clean energy strategies on future energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and system costs for a given county or state. These clean energy strategies, such as grid decarbonization and electrification, can be viewed in isolation or in combination to help states and local governments weigh the impacts of pursuing multiple strategies. The Scenario Planner can also identify the economic sectors (e.g., transportation, commercial, industrial, etc.) that present the greatest opportunity to reduce emissions, costs, and consumption.
