EIO-LCA

Type of evidence: 

"The Economic Input-Output Life Cycle Assessment (EIO-LCA) method estimates the materials and energy resources required for, and the environmental emissions resulting from, activities in our economy. The EIO-LCA method was theorized and developed by economist Wassily Leontief in the 1970s based on his earlier input-output work from the 1930s for which he received the Nobel Prize in Economics. Researchers at the Green Design Institute of Carnegie Mellon University operationalized Leontief's method in the mid-1990s, once sufficient computing power was widely available to perform the large-...

COPERT

Type of evidence: 

"COPERT is a software tool used world-wide to calculate air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from road transport. The development of COPERT is coordinated by the European Environment Agency (EEA), in the framework of the activities of the European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation. The European Commission's Joint Research Centre manages the scientific development of the model. COPERT has been developed for official road transport emission inventory preparation in EEA member countries. However, it is applicable to all relevant research, scientific and...

WITCH

Type of evidence: 

Source: 

LIAISE

"WITCH is a Regional Integrated Assessment Hard-Link Hybrid Model. Its top down component consists of an intertemporal optimal growth model in which the energy input of the aggregate production function has been expanded to give a bottom-up like description of the energy sector."

TREMOVE

Type of evidence: 

"TREMOVE is a policy assessment model, designed to study the effects of different transport and environment policies and technologies on the emissions of the transport sector. The model covers both passenger and freight transport, annually over 1995-2030. The model estimates the transport demand, the modal split, the vehicle stock turnover, the emissions of air pollutants and the welfare level under different policy scenarios."
