Extra sum for Decc’s climate calculator

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has announced an additional £300,000 in funding for its 2050 calculator project to measure climate change.

Speaking at a discussion event in Paris on 8 December, Nick Bourne, energy-efficiency minister for Decc, said that the extra money would be used to develop climate-change models in India, Indonesia, Bangladesh and South Africa.

The 2050 calculator was first developed to model UK emissions, and is an open-source platform that “enables anyone to understand the options for hitting UK emission targets”, a government press release said.
