About GEO

GEO is a set of free interactive databases and tools built collaboratively by people like you


GOAL: to promote an understanding, on a global scale, of the dynamics of change in energy systems, quantify emissions and their impacts, and accelerate the transition to carbon-neutral, environmentally benign energy systems while providing affordable energy to all.


By providing easy to use and visualize data, models and analysis tools we aim to engage the public and the experts.


Data in GEO can be edited from anywhere in the world.


We invite collaborations to help build GEO.
