    CE has recently carried out a detailed assessment of the local economic effects of developing a CCS network in the Tees Valley. We applied input-output analysis to a detailed examination of the CCS supply chain and also assessed the economic value of the process industries that would be connected to the network.

    Further information, including CE’s economic impact report, is available from the Tees Valley Collective website.

    The Impact of Improved Vehicle Efficiency on Energy Dependency in Europe

    MotorwayCambridge Econometrics was commissioned by the European Climate Foundation to consider the effects of fuel efficiency improvements to light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles on fossil fuel dependency and exposure to oil price spikes. The analysis was undertaken at the individual consumer level and for the economy as a whole. Three scenarios with increasingly ambitious vehicle efficiency improvements were modelled and tested under different oil price sensitivities. Our results show that, by improving the efficiency of cars, vans, trucks and buses, oil consumption in the EU can be reduced, leading to lower demand for imported crude oil and improving Europe’s energy independence. Moreover, consumers’ exposure to oil price shocks would be reduced, leaving them better-off in the event of oil price spikes, with small positive implications for the wider economy.

    The Use of Discount Rates in Policy Modelling

    Discount Rates in Policy ModellingCambridge Econometrics was commissioned by Friends of the Earth to provide an independent review of the discount rates used when modelling future energy and climate policies. The analysis found that choice of discount rate is highly important. It is central to estimates of long-run costs and can influence whether more investment-intensive policies, including ambitious renewable and energy efficiency policies, are supported or not.

    The final report is available here.

    Fuelling Britain’s Future

    Fuelling Britain's FutureCambridge Econometrics, building on the success of the award-winning report Fuelling Europe’s Future, has undertaken a research project to assess the economic impact of decarbonising cars and vans in the UK. The project was commissioned by the European Climate Foundation and was informed by a core working group of experts in the motor vehicles industry as well as other interested stakeholders.

    Greater Cambridgeshire City Deal - Economic Prioritisation of Transport Schemes

    Bio-BusCambridge Econometrics and SQW have completed a study for Cambridgeshire County Council in which a tool was developed to enable the economic prioritisation of the transport schemes within the Greater Cambridge City Deal. The City Deal is structured in such a way that future tranches of funding are dependent on the performance of the schemes delivered through the initial funding. The tool allowed the Council to rank the transport schemes in and around Cambridge based on their ability to facilitate or enable extra housing and employment growth in the area, while taking into account the timescales for planning, construction and occupation of the relevant development sites. The final Transport Economic Assessment Report (TEAR) is available here.
