Energy Forecasting Framework and Emissions Consensus (EFFECT) Tool

Provides relevant information by forecasting GHG emissions and other variables such as energy consumption and supply

The Energy Forecasting Framework and Emissions Consensus Tool (EFFECT) is an open and transparent modeling tool assessing impacts of policies on GHG emissions and development scenarios. It focuses on sectors that contribute to and are expected to experience rapid growth in emissions. EFFECT covers power, transport, household, industry, commercial, and agriculture sectors. In addition to forecasting GHG Emissions, EFFECT enables consensus building among disparate government departments, and forecasts energy balances and amounts of energy generating/consuming assets in a country or sector.

EFFECT has been implemented in Brazil, China, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Macedonia, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Thailand, and Vietnam.


The WBI also offers facilitated, part-time, month-long courses during which a World Bank expert takes users through the course. ESMAP also offers 1-to-1 or 1-to-many training sessions to World Bank teams or organisations implementing EFFECT
Using the tool: Analyst to get the data, and 1 senior person to review the findings
Time needed:
About three months for a couple of sectors.
