This deliverable presents and describes the prototype for the Policy Evaluation Tool (PET) which has been developed in the INNOPATHS project.
The PET was designed to be an integrated, interactive and open online platform to be used by policy makers, industry representatives, researchers and the general public across Europe. The online tool gives guidance as to what can be expected from a wide range of different low-carbon policies. This includes both past policies and future policy options. Given the scope of the INNOPATHS project, the main focus of the tool is on the EU, but policies from other countries may be considered as well. This online tool helps policy makers and other stakeholders get a clear idea what kinds of policies, and at what strength, will be required promote technical progress in low-carbon technologies, and their widespread diffusion.
