Adoption of new transport technology: a quick scan approach
AbstractQuick scan methods aim at a fast and transparent analysis of alternative solutions to planning problems in a situation of shortage of information. They generate new knowledge about solutions in early stages of decision making and in 'creative experiments' in scenario analysis. The importance of quick scan methods is growing within the trend toward more flexible and interactive approaches in decision making in policy and planning. This article presents a quick scan of alternative technology options to transport problems, in view of their adoption in the market. The technologies involved represent good efforts to contribute to energy efficiency and a reduction of air pollutants. The perspective used in this quick scan is spatial by emphasizing the influence of spatial settlement patterns in scenario thinking on future transport.
