4th Workshop of the International Transport Energy Modeling (iTEM) Consortium

Energy Program researchers, David McCollum and Paul Kishimoto, host the annual meeting of iTEM, an open group of people and organizations interested in the role of energy in the world's transport system.

The shared goal of iTEM partners is to better understand the data and methods that are applied to study the global transport system—especially large-scale models—and through dialogue to improve knowledge of the system, its ongoing evolution, and the policy and technology options for guiding its changes. 

‘iTEM’ focuses on issues and analyses that: 

  • are international: speaking to global trends, involving cross-country comparisons, or localized work with models that have international applicability or implications. 
  • cover the transport of passengers and freight, by all modes, technologies, and fuels, from the local/urban to international. 
  • project the energy, climate change, and other related impacts of transport activity; or study policy and other efforts to address these impacts. 
  • involve modeling: quantitative work with shareable frameworks, tools, and/or software; data for feeding such work; and assessments based on modelling work. 

The agenda for this year’s meeting at IIASA is comprised of sessions on: 

  • New methods and models for projecting transport demand 
  • Autonomous, shared and micro-mobility 
  • Freight & international passenger transport 
  • Trucking & diesel vehicles 
  • New data sources and community database efforts 

Workshop participants include academic groups at universities and independent research organizations, departments within national governments, international government organizations (IGOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), energy industry firms, and consultancies.

The workshop will open with a welcome from IIASA ENE program director Keywan Riahi and senior research scholar David McCollum, as well as a keynote by TNT program director Arnulf Grubler. Paul Kishimoto (ENE/TNT postdoctoral scholar) will give a talk on using advanced demand systems and survey data to characterize Chinese households’ transport expenditures. 

Participation in the workshop is by invitation only; to be a part of the iTEM consortium more generally, contact the organizing committee, including ">David McCollum and Paul Kishimoto.

About the International Transport Energy Modeling (iTEM)


International Transport Energy Modeling, or iTEM, is an open group of people and organizations interested in the role of energy in the world's transport system.


Our shared goal is to better understand the data and methods that are applied to study this system—especially large-scale models—and through dialogue to improve knowledge of the system, its ongoing evolution, and the policy and technology options for guiding its changes.
