Emissions modelling

Since the early 1980s, emissions calculation models have been the primary method for determining current and future energy consumption, emissions of greenhouse gas and harmful substances in the transport sector, and for assessing the necessity and impact of measures designed to reduce emissions. Our TREMOD model plays a defining role in the configuration and ongoing development of emissions modelling in the transport sector.

Greenhouse gas emissions of the German travel mobility

Travel generates large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions that have not yet been fully recorded. Travel mobility represents about half of the total mobility of nationals, half of it is abroad.


Update of the models TREMOD/TREMOD-MM

The emission calculation models TREMOD and TREMOD-MM are the most important data sources for energy consumption and pollutant emissions of transport and mobile equipment and machinery in Ger-many. A comprehensively updated database is now available for the years 1960-2018 and for the trend scenario until 2050.
