Achieving low carbon and sustainable transport systems in Yorkshire and Humber
JMP Consulting and the SEI analyse in this report what measures would be needed to achieve a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from transport in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
It examines the changes in patterns of travel behaviour that can be achieved through the implementation of best practice transport interventions, and modelling the carbon impact of such changes in behaviour using the REAP (Resource and Energy Analysis Programme) model.
This has been undertaken by modelling the carbon impact, using REAP over the period to 2020, of a far reaching programme of transport investment and interventions in the period from 2011, way beyond the scale of current practice in the region.
Three scenarios have been applied:
- The Business as Usual scenario, which has been developed to identify the current “direction of travel” based on existing regional transport policy and investments
- The Next Steps scenario, which adopts a phased approach to implementing transport measures
- The Visionary scenario, which includes a more rapid introduction of transport interventions.
