Final Report - STEPS (Scenarios for the Transport System and Energy Supply and their Potential Effects)

Project ID: 506310
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the STEPS project, which was designed and implemented by a group of institutes, companies and universities to achieve the tasks of Research Domain 1.10 within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for Research and Technological Development of the European Commission. The STEPs project had the following overall objective: to develop, compare and assess possible scenarios for the transport system and energy supply of the future taking into account the state of the art of relevant research within and outside FP6 and such criteria as the autonomy and security of energy supply, effects on the environment and economic, technical and industrial viability including the impact of potential cost internalisation and the interactions between transport and land use.

The report consists of five parts with different contents. Within these parts, the project background, motivation and objectives are presented, the STEPS assessment approach is described, the model outputs are analysed, the scenario assessment is explained and conclusions and recommendations follow, summing up the work done and the knowledge obtained during the course of this research.
