Future evolution of the car stock in Belgium: CASMO, the new satellite of PLANET [31/01/2019]

Within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the Federal Planning Bureau and the Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport, the Federal Planning Bureau produces every three years long-term projections of transport demand in Belgium. These projections are obtained with the national transport projection model PLANET. The current paper describes the new car stock model for Belgium, CASMO (Car Stock Model), which is linked to PLANET. When combined with the projections of transport activity levels in PLANET, these projections of the car stock model can be used to model the environmental impact of road transport. The paper discusses both methodological issues and the results that have been used in the most recent long-term projections of transport demand.

Outlook for transport demand in Belgium by 2040 [31/01/2019]

Within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the Federal Planning Bureau and the Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport, the Federal Planning Bureau produces, every three years, long-term projections of transport demand in Belgium. This exercise is the fourth of its kind so far. It aims to make a projection of no change in policy, indicating general long-term trends and allowing elements on which transport policy should be based to be identified and the impact of transport policy measures to be studied.

Modelling tomorrow’s transport efficiently and following-up closely and continuously the results of Belgium’s transport policy rank high among the Belgian government’s priorities. In order to achieve these, it is of the utmost importance to have the fullest possible view of the main aspects of mobility in Belgium, as well as of the place and evolution of transport within our economy.

It is with this aim in mind that the Federal Planning Bureau works on transport matters. Concretely, transport research at the Federal Planning Bureau covers the following topics:

  • mobility and transport indicators;
  • transport satellite accounts;
  • medium- and long-term projections of transport demand in Belgium (the PLANET model and other research projects);
  • reform of the rail transport sector (see theme ‘Belgian and European regulation’).
