Methane leakage modeling tool
See the climate impact of switching to natural gas
We developed this modeling tool to explore the climate implications of reducing emissions from natural gas systems in the context of a switch towards natural gas-fueled technologies.
Use the model to create scenarios comparing a hypothetical “policy case” to the baseline case by adjusting leak rates, fuel mix (power and transport sectors), and efficiency in the power sector (see below for sample scenarios).
The results of your choices are depicted in both a graph and a table over time. These results show the potential change in “climate influence” — or, more precisely, the change in cumulative radiative forcing relative to total 2010 U.S. greenhouse gas emissions over 100 years.
