LEAP: Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System User Guide

The Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning system (LEAP) is a scenario-based energy-environment modeling tool. Its scenarios are based on comprehensive accounting of how energy is consumed, converted, and produced in a given region or economy under a range of alternative assumptions on population, economic development, technology, price, and so on. With its flexible data structures, LEAP allows for analysis as rich in technological specification and end-use detail as the user chooses.
