Below are some of our recently updated projects.
- with the policy challange: Low carbon transport
An assessment of costs for heat transition and transport decarbonisation in Scotland for different rates of adoption of low-carbon technologies.
A review of the evidence and policy surrounding low-carbon fuels in transport, with a focus on the aviation and maritime sectors.
Methodology for apportioning measured emissions in non-domestic buildings
An assessment of some of the possible impacts for the future second-hand bus market from shifting to battery electric buses.
Evidence to support the development of integrated policy interventions to increase sustainable travel among Scotland’s children, young people and their families.
Establishing the difference in cost between installing electric vehicle (EV) charge points during initial construction or major renovation of a building as opposed to retrofitting at a later date.
This study assesses greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy use on fishing vessel. It considers a range of characteristics including vessel length, engine power, areas operated and species targeted.
Insight into public perceptions of the Scottish Government’s commitment to reduce car kilometres travelled by 20% by 2030. It considers issues like car clubs and other enabling measures, and messaging around reducing car use.
This report assesses the impact of working from home (WFH) in Scotland. WFH has the potential to reduce carbon emissions associated with commuting and office space, but must be balanced against an expected increase in emissions in the home.
This research examines 'last mile delivery' - the movement of goods from a transport hub to the final destination - and its associated emissions. There is a need for better understanding of the sector to enable Transport Scotland and local authorities to take steps to mitigate negative environmental and social impacts.
This study considers the ambition for 20 minute neighbourhoods in Scotland, taking account of the differing settlement patterns across the country, and analyses international evidence of the success of interventions to achieve these ambitions.
Examining how satellite observations of the atmosphere could be used to report GHG emissions more frequently and with less time-lag.
