Train travel baselines 2018

Default and benchmark transport data > Wikis > Train travel baselines 2018

These baselines are based on data available in NTMCalc 4.0, literature reviews and expert interviews. The settings aim to reflect on general train travel. In general we recommend use of real data if available at sufficient quality. NTM default data are conservatively assessed and should if used thereby not enable low emission calculations. Furthermore they should promote actual used train data in relation to NTM default data, hence being used in the choice of train solutions.
