ICCT Roadmap Model

From Open Energy Information

An Excel-based modeling tool intended to aid policy makers with identifying trends, evaluating emissions and energy efficiency with respect to various policy options, and generating strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution.

This tool is included in the Development Impacts Assessment (DIA) Toolkit from the LEDS Global Partnership.


The Roadmap model is designed to allow transparent, customizable estimation of transportation emissions for a broad range of policy cases. The model estimates changes in transportation activity by country and region based on changes in forecasts of population, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and relative fuel prices. Results are summarized on an output tab, which enables comparisons between cases, modes, and countries, and a country dashboard tab, which tabulates numerous estimates for any selected country/region.
