Expert Panel on Transport

The Expert Panel on Transport is part of the Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (TFEIP), which operates under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP). In this site you will find information and news on Transport issues. This web site was created in the hope to provide a easily accessible web-forum in order to take ahead the activities of transport emission inventories, both by promoting new research, where such is needed, as well as by putting together experts and promoting the exchange of views and information. We, as Chairs of the TFEIP Expert Panel, only hope to mediate this process, but the real work, is up to you the Experts. With this we invite you to use our contacts in order to make suggestions and proposals both for the website, as well as the content of the work of the Panel. If you want to contact us, please go to the Contact page.

Expert Panel Documents

Work programme

The activities of the Transport Panel are discussed and decided yearly during the winter Meeting of the TFEIP. Following the meeting a new work programme is put together for the following year. This work programme has to take into account the relevant activities which go on funded by the EEA, the JRC and other national bodies or research organizations, since no special funding is available within the panel. 

 

For more info, see the following work programmes:

 

Guidance

Data on emission inventory projections, including activity are available from the LIFE+ project EC4MACS. Click in "key data" on the left column menu.

 

Updates

  • Updated information on NRMM compiled by the Danish Inventory team (Morten Winther). The information contains updated Tier 1 and 2 emission factors and detailed Tier 3 emission factors originating from the German Tremod model. This information is provided for consideration and review by the national experts.

Note on updated method: Word Document

Spreadsheet with Tier 3 emission factors:  Excel File

  • Updates to the COPERT model and methodology can be found at the Emisia website, clicking on Copert, under the section "Versions".

  • Updates to the HBEFA model and methodology can be found at the HBEFA website.

  • Updates on emission factors and other ERMES activities are available at the ERMES website. Please see the work-programme for the list of activities and the progress reports of new updates.
