Research focus:
- emission measurements, technology assessment, soft measures, policy assessment, tool development, behaviour

Current activities:

The TWG Energy and Climate Change also prepared inputs for the FP7 update. These inputs have been gathered in a report entitled "White spots in the European Transport research traced by ECTRI's Thematic Working Groups". This report was released to the EC in June 2009.
