Scientific review of TREMOVE - a European transport policy assessment model

28-09-2006 | Publication

A review of the European policy assessment model TREMOVE carried out by IIASA (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis), BIO Intelligence Services S.A.S., IEEP (Institute for European Environmental Policy) and the MNP (Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency) has led to the conclusion that TREMOVE is a valuable model to apply to the analysis of the environmental and welfare impacts of transport policies. However, some limitations related to the structure, assumptions and treatment of uncertainty in TREMOVE have been identified that may diminish the model's potential to provide robust policy-relevant insights in all policy cases. Short- and long-term recommendations to improve the policy analysis performance of the model and to make the model less complex are formulated in the report.
