Decarbonising Transport in Europe – Project results, scenarios feasibility and policy implications
ITF Secretary-General, Young Tae Kim, opens this event.
In this event the ITF presents two scenarios to decarbonise transport in Europe, discusses their implementation feasibility and evaluates the policy implications with a wide range of stakeholders. Three years of ITF work on the Decarbonising Transport In Europe Project (DTEU) funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Programme will be featured in several sessions that cover two days.
The DTEU project aims to help the European Union to achieve its CO2 reduction ambitions for the transport sector. The project will provide European policy makers with better quantitative evidence on the actual impact of CO2 mitigation measures. The ITF has developed a suite of advanced models of transport activity in Europe as part of the project. This will allow decision makers to select the most effective policy measures and identify realistic pathways towards decarbonising transport by 2050.
