Integrated TRansport and ENergy Baseline until 2030

The TRANS-TOOLS model is developed to be the core detailed transport analysis tool for the European Union (EU). Its policy forecasting capabilities can be significantly enhanced by linking it with state-of-the-art tools in the field of energy, environment and economic analysis. The iTREN-2030 project intends to create this linkages. The overall objective of the project is to extend the forecasting and assessment capabilities of TRANS-TOOLS to new policy issues, in particular those arising from the technology, environment and energy fields. The specific objectives are: (1) to link environmental assessment capabilities to TRANS-TOOLS by connecting to TREMOVE;  (1) to link detailed energy price and technology driven cost changes to TRANS-TOOLS by connecting to POLES; (2) to measure indirect economic impacts of transport policies (welfare, GDP, employment), by connecting to ASTRA; (3) to extend forecasting horizon of TRANS-TOOLS and TREMOVE until 2030;  (4) to generate a coherent baseline for: TRANS-TOOLS, TREMOVE, POLES, ASTRA; and (5) to consider user needs and compare with forecasts of previous studies.
