Transport Emissions Evaluation Models for Projects (TEEMP) tool


The Transport Emissions Evaluation Models for Projects (TEEMP) tool is a suite of excel-based, free-of-charge, suite of spreadsheet models and methods that can be used to evaluate the greenhouse gas, air pollution, and other impacts of many types of transportation projects. The TEEMP tools were initially developed by the Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia) and Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) for evaluating the emissions impacts of the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) transport projects. TEEMP has been modified and extended to serve as a standard method to evaluate Global Environmental Facility (GEF) projects.

The most recent release of TEEMP incorporates the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Standards to help users identify the most effective elements of bus rapid transit project design to spur ridership, boost travel speeds, and cut emissions. It can also be used for basic analysis where there are major gaps in local data, but also can help identify key local data that could help provide more accurate project forecasts of ridership, emissions, and benefits.

TEEMP can be easily applied for evaluating the impacts of various transport measures at a project level. Project-level TEEMP models exist for bus rapid transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and highway projects, as well as travel demand management measures.
