The Energy Toolkit compiles 18 leading instruments and methodologies for low-emission, climate-resilient development planning in the energy sector. It offers a quick reference guide for well-established low-emissions development strategies planning tools that are available at no or low cost from organizations and agencies around the world.

Targeted as a quick reference guide for energy practitioners, policymakers, and experts, the toolkit will be regularly updated. If you have developed a low emissions energy modelling tool or know of one that should be featured here, please tell us about it. 


The Energy Toolkit was a team effort with the many members of the Low-Emissions Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) and, in particular, its Energy Working Group (LEDS EWG). The Worldwatch Institute cooperated with the working group’s regional co-chairs to select and compile the tools presented in the Energy Toolkit.

The LEDS GP was founded to enhance coordination, information exchange, and cooperation among countries and international programs working to advance low-emission, climate-resilient growth. Launched in early 2011, the LEDS GP has made significant progress advancing collaboration and learning across more than 120 developing and developed country governments, technical institutes, and multilateral organizations engaged in low-emission, climate-resilient development.

The LEDS EWG promotes low-emission and climate-resilient development in the energy sector through a work program focused on learning and information exchange, sharing best practices, advisory services, and providing enhanced opportunities for coordination and collaboration.
