Exchanging on methologies to assess the impact of ICT measures on road transport at 2nd ICT-Emissions exploitation group workshop

The second meeting of the ICT-Emissions exploitation group took place on March 7th, 2013 at the Polis network premises in Brussels.

In this meeting Professor Zissis Samaras, from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) –  the project coordinator – presented the energy and emissions modeling approach developed in ICT-Emissions; Ms Silvana Toffolo from IVECO (Italy) illustrated the selection of ICT measures for assessing their impact on CO2 emissions.

Two representatives from EU funded projects Amitran (Assessment Methodologies for ICT in multi-modal transport from User Behaviour to CO2 reduction) and ECOSTAND were invited to attend the workshop in presenting Amitran’s assessment methodology for determining the impacts of ICT or ITS on energy efficiency and CO2 emissions in the transport sector.

The exploitation group meeting was attended by 24 delegates, representing public authorities (Rotterdam, Zurich, Agence Wallonne de l’Air et du Climat, the Dutch agency Rijkswaterstaat which is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment), the automotive industry and OEMs (Toyota Motor Europe, Magneti Marelli), AVL, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), Aimsum (transport modelling software), TNO (Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research), TECNALIA (private Technology Centre in Spain devoted to applied research), NOKIA, the European Federation of Leasing Company Associations (Leaseurope).
