The NODES Toolbox addresses energy and environmental specific issues in the planning, design, construction, upgrading and management of interchanges. It took into account the inclusion of alternative modes such as car sharing, car pooling, and soft modes. Aspects related to the electrification of transport were also covered, as well as the energy efficiency and environmental performance of the interchange itself.
A dedicated assessment of the E&E of interchange design. This document aims to work out dedicated specifications related to the energy and environmental issues in the planning, design, construction, upgrading and management of interchanges. It deals with two different issues: the energy balance and environmental friendliness of the urban transport interchange; and the combination of different environmental friendly types of transport carriers and service offers.
Development of an energy efficiency and environment good practice and transfer tool. This paper gives local interchange stakeholders a handbook that will allow them to benchmark performance and identify the relevant tools including best practices in the field of Energy and Environment.
