WP1 Transport demand, behavior and modal shift.
Lead: Roskilde University

WP 1 covers research on the relationship between transport demand and the
development of technology, infrastucture investments, regulatory measures
and other variables.

WP2 TIMES-DK energy system model with advanced transport module.
Lead: E4SMA

The aim of WP2 is to expand the energy system model TIMES-DK to improve
 the representation othe transportation sector. The TIMES-DK model will
be extended to incorporate modal choice behavior, and constrained to 
meet annual short- and long-distance travel demand, which will be modeled exogenously based on the output from LTM (WP1). This new 
advanced module will include an increased number of technologoptions, 
a detailed split of demand, and a more sophisticated incorporation of
transport within the energy system. It will also enable modal shift by simulating modal speed, waiting and transfer time, infrastructurereliability, 
congestion, accessibility, etc.

WP3 Fuel production and transport pathways.
Lead: DTU Management Engineering

WP3 provides the overall conceptual and analytical framework for the 
development and analyses of future scenarios with an improved 
representation of transport in energy system modeling. WP3 will first supplement WP2 with detailed modeling of emerging fuel production 
technologies antheir specific interaction with the energy system. WP3
will furthermore identify robust pathways through analysis of which 
technical developments and coordinated policy instruments are needed to
achieve a 100% renewable energy system in Denmark (including the
transport sector) - using the developed modeling framework from WP2.
For this purpose different scenarios will be developed together with WP4.

WP4 Stakeholder Involvement.
Lead: DTU Management Engineering

The aim of WP4 is partly to advance theoretical and applied research into
novel methods of stakeholder including in scenario analyses and partly to
develop and apply qualitative methodologie(participatory and interactive
methods) in order to add informed expert and stakeholder assessment
to the developed scenarios. This includes both front-end (input to scenarios)
and back-end input (vetting the preliminary results) from key stakeholders and users. The first parts of WP4 (until May 2016) will be carried out in coordination with an ongoing EU Marie Curie IIF project Energizing Futures.
