Rhode Island Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) is a free, open-source, peer-reviewed model created by Energy Innovation LLC and RMI. The EPS allows users to estimate climate and energy policy impacts through 2050 on emissions, the economy, jobs, and public health using publicly available data. Acadia Center, in collaboration with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, developed a customized scenario using the Rhode Island EPS. The results of this customized scenario were included in the Rhode Island 2022 Climate Update with the goal of providing a high-level decarbonization analysis based on a select subset of key actions identified in the plan.
