Title: What makes a great 2050 project

Content: This is part of a series of "what makes a great.." notes to help people who are interested in copying the 2050 calculator. They are ideals, which the UK calculator may not live up to.

A great 2050 project:

* Covers all potential energy forms (oil, coal, gas, biomass, electricity etc)
* Includes all greenhouse gases (from fossil fuel combustion, but also from industrial chemical processes and land-use etc)
* Is supported by stakeholders with wildly differing views
* Is used to inform Government decision-making

A good process:

# Divide the country into sectors
# Do initial desk research on each sector
# Meet experts in & outside government to agree levels 1-4
# Create sector worksheets
# Combine worksheets into excel workbook
# Translate excel workbook into online versions
# Work out implications & test results (“Call for evidence”)
# Get the tool used inside and outside government
