CONNECTING aims at addressing the challenges posed by increasing cross-border commuting between France and Luxembourg, and at quantifying the environmental impacts posed by answering these challenges.
The number of cross-border commuters working in Luxembourg is increasing by about 6% each year. Most are using their private cars, which pose environmental and congestion problems. In parallel, Luxembourg has set clear national mobility objectives for 2020: to reach 40000 electric vehicles in the private fleet, and ensure that 19% of all passenger travels be by public transportation.
To compare potential mobility scenarios in the 2015-2025 period, the project relies on a combination of agent-based modelling (ABM) and hybrid life cycle assessment (LCA):
The final objective of CONNECTING is the production of a web-based tool featuring the various scenario comparisons and parameters to inform the general public in terms of modal choices, and to assist other stakeholders, in particular policymakers, in their mobility-related decision-making.
See the relevant sections for details: Questions & Objectives, Innovation impact.
Consequential life cycle assessment of multi-modal mobility policies – the case of Luxembourg (CONNECTING) is a research project funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR).
