Specific contract for long-term quantitative assessment of policy scenarios for the EU transport system
TRT holds a framework contract for the simulation of long-term scenarios relating to the evolution of the transport system in EU 28 Member States up to 2050.
Scenarios and their variants are assessed with the use of European scale simulation models by TRT and E3MLab, laboratory of the National Technical University of Athens. The modeling tools are:
TRUST, for the quantification of traffic impacts on road and rail networks and of specific emissions on the European territory;
PRIMES-TREMOVE, for the quantification of the evolution of the vehicle fleet of different transport modes and of the related energy consumption starting from changes in costs and/or legislation on technologies;
GEM-E3, for the quantification of macroeconomic impacts.
Studies carried out under the framework contract concern the development of baselines, scenarios and variants focusing on transport, energy and macroeconomic systems and providing results at EU member state level.
