The Philippines joins the UK Government’s 2050 Calculator programme being delivered by Mott MacDonald and partners

The Philippines’ Department of Energy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate with the UK Government on the development of a Philippines 2050 Calculator energy and emissions model, under the 2050 Calculator extension programme.

The UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) appointed engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald to deliver the £3M, three-year 2050 Calculator extension programme, leading a consortium which includes Imperial College London, Climact and Ricardo. The programme supports developing country governments to build their own version of the UK’s 2050 Calculator model – a tool which allows users to trial different options for reducing emissions at a faster rate and to build a pathway that meets long-term emission targets to 2050.

The 2050 Calculator is a uniquely open, transparent and interactive energy model that can be used by governments, stakeholders and the public to understand how to decarbonise a region or country, and to develop evidence-based policies. It was originally developed for use in the UK but is now in use in over 30 countries.

The Philippines signing marks the fifth country to join the extension programme, following Vietnam, Malaysia, Nigeria and Thailand; while the original programme supported 10 countries to create 2050 Calculators.
