ForFITS: a New Help in Transport Decision Making for a Sustainable Future
AbstractThe aim of this study is to present a new software tool which was developed to project activity, energy use and CO2 emissions in the transport sector. The ForFITS (For Future Inland Transport Systems) program was designed to help policy makers to create long-term transport strategies based on forecasted sustainable emission parameters. This article contains information about the basic methodology of the software and shows how useful the simulations are. With using ForFITS – after collecting the required data – scenarios of future vehicle stocks, costs, energies used and emissions can be calculated, analyzed and compared. The product of the UNDA project is available for any authority freely so it seems like ForFITS cannot have a competitor in the market.
Keywords: CO2 emission forecasting model, energy consumption, sustainability, transport policy
