The En-ROADS simulator focuses on different global climate actions across several different sectors, mainly energy, but also including land and industry. En-ROADS tests actions at the global level. It covers interventions like carbon pricing, electric transport, population, and technological carbon removal.
The C-ROADS simulator, in contrast, focuses on specific emission reduction pledges from different countries and world regions (e.g., to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement). In C-ROADS you can test actions like:
What if China’s carbon emissions don’t peak until 2040?
What if the European Union reduces its emissions 5% per year starting today?
C-ROADS doesn’t enable various types of actions across the energy sector to be explored, like En-ROADS, and En-ROADS doesn’t allow you to test actions at the country or regional level.
