En-ROADS does not explicitly represent local, national, international, and corporate policies, but instead estimates the overall effects of the conditions they create. In creating the En-ROADS Baseline Scenario, our modeling team does not calculate the impact of specific policies such as the United States’ Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

Climate policies in place around the world today, such as the IRA and China’s “1+N” framework, are promoting renewables, continuing to subsidize oil and gas, and incentivizing energy efficiency and electrification. The Baseline Scenario includes an approximate, aggregated implementation of these current global technological, policy, and investment conditions.
