What is MoMo? MoMo is a spreadsheet model of global transport, energy use, emissions, safety and materials use. Analysis of a multiple set of scenarios and projections to 2050 Based on hypotheses on GDP and population growth, vehicle fuel economy, fuel costs, travel demand, and vehicle and fuel market shares. World divided in 29 regions, including several specific countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Japan, Korea, China, India MoMo contains a large amount of information (data) on technology and fuel pathways. Full evaluation of life cycle greenhouse gas emissions. Cost estimates for new light duty vehicles (LDV), fuels and fuel taxes. Valuation of transport sector expenditures to 2050: vehicles, fuels and infrastructure. Module on material requirements for LDV manufacturing. MoMo applies the "ASIF" framework: Activity (travel demand) * Structure (travel by mode, load factors) * energy Intensity = Fuel use © OECD/IEA 2012

Transport Modes 2-3 wheelers Light duty vehicles Spark ignition (SI) ICEs Compression ignition (CI) ICEs SI hybrid ICEs (including plug-ins) CI hybrid ICEs (including plug-ins) Hydrogen ICE hybrids (including plug-ins) Fuel cell vehicles Electric vehicles Heavy duty vehicles Minibuses Buses and BRT systems Medium freight trucks Heavy freight trucks Rail (Intercity, High-Speed and Freight) Air (passenger, new module under development) Water transport (freight, new module under development) © OECD/IEA 2012

Fuel Pathways Liquid petroleum fuels Gasoline Diesel (high- and low-sulphur) Biofuels Ethanol (grain, sugar cane, and advanced technologies [lignocellulose]) Biodiesel (conventional [fatty acid methyl esters, FAME or biodiesel obtained from hydrogenation of vegetable oil in refineries] and advanced processes [BTL, fast pyrolysis, hydrothermal upgrade]) Synthetic fuels Gas-to-liquids (GTL) and coal-to-liquids (CTL) Gas Compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and biogas Electricity Treated separately for electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and other modes, by generation mix and region Hydrogen From natural gas (with and without CO2 sequestration), electricity and point of use electrolysis (with and without CO2 sequestration), biomass gasification and advanced low-GHG hydrogen production © OECD/IEA 2012

This is applied to all country and regional assessments in the MoMo historic database. © OECD/IEA 2012

Analytical Capabilities The MoMo model follows the ASIF structure and calculates energy and emissions by mode, with more detailed analysis on stock, sales and costs depending on mode and data availability. For LDVs and freight trucks: A stock and sales model has been developed. Activity, intensity and energy use are estimated. CO2 emissions are calculated (well-to-wheel and tank-to-wheel, using ETP modelling framework). Pollutant emissions (CO, VOCs, PM, lead and NOx) estimated. Vehicle and fuel costs. For buses and 2/3 wheelers: MoMo tracks stock, stock efficiency, travel, energy use and emissions. For rail and air: Total travel activity, energy intensities, energy use and emissions are tracked. For shipping: To date, MoMo tracks sectorial energy use and emissions. © OECD/IEA 2012

Analytical Capabilities MoMo has a user interface that allows: What-if scenario building. Back casting. Use of elasticities for ownership and mileage. Mode shift scenario building for passenger travel. MoMo also estimates material requirements and emissions: Analysis of future vehicle sales (e.g. fuel cells) and how they impact materials requirements (e.g. precious metals) is possible. Full life-cycle analysis for GHG emissions from LDVs (including manufacturing) can be calculated. Recent MoMo capacity developments include: Urban and non-urban travel splits applying data from a global set of mobility surveys. Land transport infrastructure requirements in support of travel demand growth. Fuel cost, T&D, storage and distribution infrastructure assessment. Cost estimations from vehicle, fuel and infrastructure investments. © OECD/IEA 2012

Who supports this work? Now 13 partner institutions. Six have been financing the project development since the end of the SMP. © OECD/IEA 2012
