European Commission Technical Report Published

European Commission Technical Report

You may like to take a look at a new technical report that has just been published by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission entitled “Powertrain Technology Transition Market Agent Model (PTTMAM): An Introduction“.

“This JRC Technical Report provides an introduction to the JRC system dynamics based Powertrain Technology Transition Market Agent Model (PTTMAM). This comprehensive system dynamics model, covering the period 1995 to 2050, was designed to capture the key feedbacks and interactions between manufacturers, authorities, infrastructure providers and users across the 28 EU member states and 16 powertrain options available in the light duty vehicle market.”


UK Chapter Document Library Updated

Hi, just a quick update; the online resource for UK Chapter events, from 1999 to the present day has been, has been updated with many more papers/presentations etc.

Click here to access the online document library.


A new UK SD resource is available

Due to the herculean efforts of Siôn Cave (Decision Analysis Services), the UK Chapter would like to present a (hopefully) useful resource for all those interested in System Dynamics in the UK; a repository of presentations / reports / posters / videos etc. presented at our annual conferences, special events or networking evenings (going back to 1999).  This simple library takes the form of a downloadable Excel spreadsheet containing details for each of the available documents and links to access them online.

You can access this resource from the “resource” menu at the main UK Chapter website, or by clicking here.
