We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Since the use of PTTMAM requires a Vensim® DSS license, we assume some familiarity with the system dynamics modelling approach. A concise user manual is available here:
A description of the model can be found in the JRC Technical Report Powertrain Technology Transition Market Agent Model – An introduction.
PTTMAM has been used to produce the following peer-reviewed publications. The versions of the model used for the analysis reported in those papers differ from the version currently available for download on this webpage.
