Navius Research


gTech combines a detailed representation of energy-related technologies (from vehicles to fridges to crude oil extraction) with key economic transactions within the economy. This unique combination of technological detail and macroeconomic completeness allows us to simulate the effects of virtually any type of energy or climate policy on technology adoption, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and the broader economy. gTech can encompass all regional levels in Canada including territories, as well as the US. Results can be reported from 2015 to 2050.
