Dr Simon Roberts of Arup University has, with colleagues, developed the 7see framework. This powerful economic model uses public data from the UK’s national accounts and other sources to expose how the differing sectors of the economy keep us employed, use energy and generate carbon emissions.

Key features

In the post-COP21 era modelling tools such as 7see will be valuable to researchers and policy-makers who want to navigate paths towards a low carbon economy without sacrificing a growing economy or risking high unemployment. In this white paper Simon explains how the model works and some of the scenarios it generates.
