URBAN TRANSPORT OPTIONS FOR PROPULSION SYSTEMS AND INSTRUMENTS FOR ANALYSIS

Objective

The main objective is to provide decision-makers with the necessary information base, tools, methods and guidelines for hastening the market introduction of the most appropriate transport solutions based on new propulsion technologies and systems (NPS).
NPS will have a wide range of impacts on many aspects of society, in particular on environment, which need to be understood by decision-makers, together with how these impacts affect the likelihood of market take-up. UTOPIA will draw on experiences and previous studies in Europe and the rest of the world, to assess the introductory methods that have been used. The project will analyse how these can best be applied to the specific situations that occur in Europe and provide tools to understand what the effects of this might be. Ongoing demonstration projects such as ZEUS and CENTAUR will be used as case studies and test sites. This will allow the tools and methods developed in UTOPIA to be tested and honed during the project.
The project will:

- analyse the methods and results of new propulsion system demonstration projects around the world;
- develop guidelines on the best ways of introducing such systems based on the findings of this analysis;
- develop software to help decision-makers in both comparative testing of different sites where new systems are being introduced, and in finding appropriate technological solutions for specific urban situations.
%
- State-of-the-art reviews, inventories and databases of new propulsion systems and market-oriented transport concepts based on these systems, recommendations on policy guidelines for fostering the Europe-wide introduction of new systems.
