Online science tools and resources

The successful online science tools and resources (models and databases) developed jointly by the Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) and Energy (ENE) Programs were maintained and expanded in 2015.

The TNT-ENE tools spearheaded by Peter Kolp have become a hallmark of the IIASA mission to support scientific research, documentation, and dissemination. Their reach has grown exceptionally with page visits and downloads ranging from 104 to 106 per year (Figure 1). TNT and ENE scientists have also developed a number of web-based solutions for model and scenario inter-comparison projects, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In total two dozen scenario databases are currently hosted by IIASA. The usage of these has grown substantially over the years, reaching about 3,000 unique visitors and 130 GB of downloads per month in 2015 (Figure 2).
