Norwegians klimaprofil

Norwegian hevder at flyreiser er like miljøvennlige som togreiser i Norge. Det stemmer ikke. 

Oppvarmende fjærskyer

Cirrusskyer fra flyenes kondensstriper står for en betydelig andel av oppvarmingen fra flytrafikk. Klarer vi å styre unna denne skydannelsen, begrenser vi også oppvarmingen fra sektoren.

På tide med en realitetsorientering?

Dersom den globale oppvarmingen ikke skal overstige to grader cel­sius, må klimagassutslippene reduseres med anslagsvis 85 % innen 2050. Kan norsk samferdsel leve opp til en slik ambisjon? Kanskje er det på tide med en realitetsorientering, skriver leder for TEMPO-prosjektet Lasse Fridstrøm.

Vil ha rushtidsavgift

E24.no: Flertallet i befolkningen er positive til køpriser fremfor tradisjonelle bompenger.

Lyntog bra for klimaet

Hurtigtog kan gi klimagevinst både til Stockholm, Trondheim og Bergen, konkluderer høyhastighetsutredningen. Men Stavanger er det verre med.

Lyntog gir ikke klimagevinst

Lyntog i Norge vil i et 60-årsperspektiv ikke gi klimagevinst, ifølge en delrapport om prosjektet. Grunnen er blant annet CO2-utslipp i forbindelse med bygging av tunneler.

Consensus is growing among governments worldwide that the man-made emissions of greenhouse gases must be reduced and eventually eliminated. A gap exists, however, between the perceived need for policy intervention in the transport sector and our knowledge on the real-world, end-of-chain environmental, economic and societal effects of the various policy measures available to governments.

The main aim of this research project is to help fill this gap, i. e. to provide policy makers with the information needed for effective policy formulation. Based on syste­matic, rigorous, high quality interdisciplinary research the project will show how the transport sector could drastically reduce emissions in the next few decades and what political and economic challenges that this would entail.

As part of this main objective, the following subgoals are set out:

  1. Quantification of the climate impacts of present and future transport technologies.
  2. Enhanced knowledge on the climate effects of a wide range of policy measures directed towards the travel market (i e, passenger transport), and improved tools to derive them.
  3. Understanding ‘nudges’: whether and how small changes in choice context may have significant impacts on behaviour.
  4. Improved decision support tools for the greening of freight (commodity) transport.
  5. Understanding institutional constraints and opportunities and how to develop institutional capacity for policy innovation.
  6. Efficient synthetization, presentation and dissemination of results

The project’s budget is approximately NOK 35 million. The RENERGI programme board at the Research Council of Norway is providing roughly NOK 30 million of the total amount and the remainder is being financed by the user partners.

Broad-based participation

The research partners in the TEMPO project are the Institute of Transport Economics (TØI), CICERO, the University of California – Davis, the Free University of Amsterdam and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile.

The user partners are the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, the Norwegian National Rail Administration, the Norwegian State Railways (NSB), Ruter AS, the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF), NOR-WAY Bussekpress, Scania Norge, Schenker AS, the Federation of Norwegian Transport Companies, Akershus County, the Cities of the Future collaboration, and the Vestregionen regional cooperation.
