Energy Strategies is a tool created by Google that shows how different assumptions affect the cost to generate electricity and the amount of carbon dioxide emitted. The tool facilitates the locating of low-cost, low-carbon power sources.
Understand Electricity Generation allows the user to simulate and take the role of a utility planner and choose how much of each source of electric power generation to build. The graph shows a week of demand from California’s grid and the energy, carbon emission and cost by source.
It provides answers about future energy generation and its various sources under different assumptions.
