We promote socio-technical change towards smart and low carbon transport systems by providing knowledge, methods and practical tools for strategic planning and decision making.
VTT is not just providing practical information and recommendations for the transport system planning and decision making, but we also develop new business models for the transport-related services.
One example of our work is an emission calculation database Lipasto that helps everyone to check out the emissions caused by the traffic. Lipasto is the only free access and impartial database, which includes all the transport modes. The users can easily and reliably compare the energy consumption of different transport modes.
Intelligent solutions for cleaner environment and better traffic flow
The research of transport systems serves regional, national and EU-level public administration and companies. We produce information and knowledge for policy support and related tools and methods in the areas of foresight, policy instruments and impact assessments.
Our research perspective can be, for example, transport as a part of energy and climate strategies, service levels, development of technologies and service innovation processes and renewal, smart mobility or energy consumption and emissions.
Climate change, mobility and stakeholder networks
We contribute to strategies and impact assessments of public administration and private companies. A good example is ILARI-project (Transport sector policy packages for climate change mitigation in Finland up to the year 2050).
We are familiar with stakeholder networks of the transport system technologies and services, for example we’ve made project called eMAP (electromobility – scenario based Market potential, Assessment and Policy options). Movement analyses are also a part of our competence.
