September 7th, 2023: TransFair-AT Presentation at European Transport Conference 2023On Semptember 7th, 2023, Paul Pfaffenbichler presented first results from the mobility modelling work in the TransFair-AT project at the European Transport Conference 2023 of the Association of European Transport in Milan. The simulation results show how a decarbonisation of passenger transport can be achieved in Austria by 2040. The presentation slides can be downloaded here.
April 17th, 2023: TransFair-AT Expert Workshop on ModellingOn April 17th, 2023, the TransFair-AT team organised an expert workshop on modelling at WIFO. In the first part of the workshop, the four models used for the analyses in TransFair-AT &ndash DYNK, MARS, SERAPIS & Invert/EE-lab – were presented. The second part of the workshop focused on the approach for model linkage, putting emphasis on the data to be exchanged between the models. The discussions with the selected Austrian experts provided valuable input; the findings from the workshop will be incorporated into further project work. The presentation (in German) providing an overview of the models and the approach for linking can be downloaded here.
April 11th-13th, 2023: TransFair-AT Presentation at KlimatagClaudia Kettner presented the TransFair-AT project on behalf of the entire project team at the ACRP sessions at the 23rd Klimatag in Leoben. The presentation and the poster summarised the aims of the project and the methodological approach, as well as the progress of the project. The project received valuable feedback by the ACRP Steering Committee that will be integrated in the future work. The poster and the presentation are available at the website of the the 23rd Klimatag or can be downloaded here.
September 14th, 2022: TransFair-AT Presentation at ESPAnet Austria conferenceOn September 14th, 2022, Julia Bock-Schappelwein presented a TransFair-AT paper at the 5th ESPAnet Austria Conference in Vienna. The presentation focused on the impacts of rising energy prices on vulnerable households. For assessing the vulnerability of households to increases in energy prices, a composite index covering four dimensions (income poverty, energy poverty, housing conditions, transport conditions) and seven indicators was proposed. Preliminary results for Austria show that in 2019 about 13% of households were vulnerable to high energy prices. The presentation (in German) can be downloaded here.
March 31th, 2022: TransFair-AT Stakeholder Workshop on Climate Policy
On March 31st 2022, an online workshop was held to discuss characteristics of households that might be particularly vulnerable to climate policy measures, particularly carbon pricing, as well as climate policy scenarios in the context of a decarbonisation of passenger transport and housing in Austria.
