Project description

The main goal is to design and evaluate fiscal instruments to reduce NOx emissions from transport by 5 kt by 2030 compared to the NPSE-WM scenario. The subgoals are

  • to analyze the preferences of households and individuals for alternative technologies of passenger cars and their transport mode choices,
  • to analyze the behaviour of businesses using time-series data on passenger cars and light commercial vehicles fleets,
  • to simulate the effect of road charging on heavy trucks by a four-stage transport model,
  • to predict the impacts on fuel consumption, direct and indirect NOx, PM and CO2 emissions by the TIMES optimization model,
  • to quantify the impacts on the economy by a general equilibrium model and
  • to evaluate direct administrative and compliance costs of recommended variant(s).
