Describe your Application
We develop two major software tools:
, the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning system, is a tool for energy policy and climate change planning. It has been adopted by thousands of organizations
in more than 190 countries worldwide and was used by at least 35 countries as the basis for their pledges to the 2015 Paris climate conference.
Its users include government agencies, academics, non-governmental organizations, consulting companies, and energy utilities, and it has been used at many different
scales ranging from cities and states to national, regional and global applications. LEAP is a scenario-based planning tool that can be used to account for energy flows
and resources, pollution emissions, and economic costs and benefits. It can even calculate health and ecosystem impacts associated with alternative strategies.

, the Water Evaluation And Planning system is a tool for integrated water resources planning. It helps water planners to consider alternative strategies for managing
scarce water resources, for example among agricultural, municipal and environmental uses. WEAP incorporates these issues into a practical yet robust tool that consider a
wide range of issue including water demand, water supply, runoff, infiltration, crop requirements, flows, storage, pollution generation, treatment, discharge and water
quality under varying hydrologic and policy scenarios.
