SHIFT Kick Off Meeting

SHIFT – Sustainable Horizons for Transport

Transforming transport is the next big energy challenge in the Nordic region – not least because the changes needed – will critically affect the entire energy system. This project will develop and apply tools that integrate poorly understood factors – modal shifts, fuel options, new business models and consumer behaviour – into scenario modelling, and carry out in-depth analysis of two key areas: long-haul freight and urban passenger transport. Ultimately, the project will inform smarter transport and energy policy.

Participants: IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute (co-ordinator), DTU Management Engineering, Transport Economic Institute – TØI (Norway), Viktoria Swedish ICT.

DTU is leader of Work Package 1 "Energy systems modelling and scenario analysis".

The project is supported by Nordic Energy Research. SHIFT is one of the three flagship projects launched in 2015 to address common Nordic energy and climate challenges

Period: 2015-2019.
