Policy Analysis Modeling System

Forecasting S&L policy impacts

PAMS is an easy-to-use software tool that helps policymakers assess the benefits of standards and labeling programs and identify the most attractive targets for appliance efficiency levels. A free tool, PAMS is ideal for countries with fewer technical and financial resources.

PAMS is an Excel workbook designed to give first-order policy impacts projections with a minimum of preparatory research on the part of local policymakers. The tool can be used "out of the box" to estimate costs and benefits of different S&L policies for over 150 countries. Advanced users can improve the accuracy of estimates by customizing the tool with any country-specific data that are available.
