The aim of this article is the presentation of the Energy and Climate Policy Interactions decision support tool for assessing qualitatively ex-ante combinations of various energy and climate policy instruments. This tool integrates six methodological steps, wherein a policymaker can intervene and set preferences that affect the outcome of policy interactions. The advantage of this approach is that it demonstrates to some extent the qualitative effects of interacting policy instruments, depending on the current policy goals and preferences of users.
