Kapsarc data tools

See all Data / Tools

We provide free access to KAPSARC’s data and research tools, to advance the understanding of energy economics and environment policy.

Vision 2030 Dynamic Input-Output Tool

Go to the application

Saudi Arabia aims at transforming its hydrocarbon resource-rich economy into a sustainable and diversified one over the coming decade. With this goal in mind, the Vision 2030 initiative introduces a set of complex socio-economic transformation targets. As a result, diversification is expected to significantly change the sectoral composition of the economy, with the manufacturing and service sectors becoming further pillars of sustainable growth. This tool allows for a medium-term impact analysis based on relevant IOT with updated inter-industry flows and technical coefficients matrix.

KAPSARC Energy Data Portal

Go to the data portal

The KAPSARC Energy Data Portal is available to anyone seeking energy data for research. It is designed to enable users to better understand energy, including energy economics and energy policies.

 

The portal is updated regularly to include new data sets with the aim of expanding the scope of coverage as well as keeping the information current. Data sets can currently be exported in CSV, JSON, EXCEL formats or accessed using API for use in mobile and web applications.

KAPSARC Transport Analysis Framework (KTAF)

Go to the application
The KAPSARC Transport Analysis Framework (KTAF), is a tool for estimating freight transport activity and measuring the impact of transport policy measures using freely available global data sources, satellite images and nighttime lights.

 

Our methodology offers a solution to inadequate data access and allows for scenario building in policy planning for transportation. This approach allows for quick estimation of the effects of policy measures and economic changes on transportation activities at a global level.

 

The application is available in both Arabic and English. For more detail on the methodology supporting the KTAF web application, refer to the download section of the help page.

KAPSARC Datahub

Go to the application

KAPSARC Datahub is an open source platform designed to manage energy model open data and it’s versions, provides features to make API calls on any version of the open data you will need to consume from your modeling environment. Datahub helps to delineate open data management function from your model development. Manage open data in datahub, develop model in modeling ecosystem and call open data when needed

Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator

Go to the application
Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator is designed to address the research question: What are Saudi Arabia’s domestic energy policy options for a sustainable and resilient energy future?

 

Energy policy choices in Saudi Arabia can affect the domestic output of CO2 and other emissions, impact consumer costs, and alter energy export revenues. This easy-to-use tool illustrates the interactions and cumulative effects of some of the most common measures that are used around the world to help lower emissions and improve energy efficiency. The Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) is a free and open-source computer model jointly created by Energy Innovation LLC and the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC).

 

The Energy Policy Simulator allows you to examine the effects of potential energy policies, build your own policy package, and see immediately how shifts in policy variables can change the outcomes. Try it using the button below or see the documentation for a downloadable, customizable version.
