POWER TraCit - Transport Carbon IntenCities

The overall aim of the project was to identify and share knowledge and best practice between partner regions on schemes and policies with the potential to reduce carbon intensive travel while at the same time supporting the development, economic growth and sustainability of new and existing urban environments.

A common approach to measuring travel intensity and carbon audits with respect to CO2 emissions was also developed at regional levels down to specific business and individual levels in order to determine base lines, trends and to assess the impact of schemes and policies as and when they were introduced enabling regions to meet strategic aims related to each of these associated problems. This project took an integrated approach to mobility and urban & regional development; the reciprocity between regional and local sustainable mobility and regional sustainable development was explored in order determine improved implementation of Low Carbon Transport strategies to the benefit of both.

The mix of Academic, Industrial and Municipal partners will bring together experts, decision makers and practitioners in order that policy recommendations can be made that are evidenced by research and are implementable given political and regulatory frameworks across the partner regions.
