Objectives of GHG-TransPoRD

Main objectives:

  • To support the EU in defining a feasible research and policy strategy for GHG reductions of transport that fits and contributes to the overall GHG reduction targets of the EU.
  • To propose GHG reduction targets for transport as a whole as well as for each transport mode.

Specific objectives:

  • Identification of promising and feasible measures (i.e. technology pathways and policies).
  • Techno-economic analysis of details of promising measures to estimate effectiveness of GHG reductions as well as technical feasibility and economic cost and affordability.
  • Formulation of scenarios consisting of both selected technology pathways and transport policies that would achieve GHG reduction targets for 2020 ( -20 or -30%) and 2050 (-60 to -80%).
  • Linking the promising scenarios with a suggestion for an EU research strategy.
  • Communicate with stakeholders about project findings and most recent advancements in particular of new technologies to have a platform of mutual understanding.
