Scaling up methodology for CO2 emissions in ICT applications in traffic and transport in Europe
The Amitran project aims to define a reference methodology for evaluating the effects of ICT measures in trafäc and transport on energy efficiency and consequently CO2 emissions. This methodology can be used as a reference by future projects and will address different modes for both passenger and freight transport through a comprehensive well-to-wheel approach. Scaling up is an important part of this methodology. Starting from the identification of user behaviours and transport characteristics affected by Intelligent Transport Systems (lTS) and their correlation to parameters affecting COz emissions, the development of a generic scaling up methodology aims at the translation of COz emission effects from a local level to a larger (e.g. European) level. For scaling up two methods are distinguished: a direct method using statistics and one using a macroscopic multimodal traffic model. The selection of the used method depends on the type of expected effects and the availability of relevant models. ln the course of the Amitran project a knowledge base will be developed to provide guidance to the Amitran users to scale up their results. The knowledge base will also provide examples of scaling up for different ITS applications and links to relevant data.
