This brief outlines an effort begun by the above five organizations to jointly carry out a systematic comparison of transport models that they operate and help maintain (ICCT Roadmap, IIASA MESSAGE, PNNL GCAM and IEA MoMo, with ITS-Davis involved in running and contributing data for comparisons both for GCAM and MoMo). These models, data used in these models, and specific transport/energy scenarios created with these models are being compared. Additional organizations/models could be added in the future. This brief proposes a specific project for funding to continue to make progress in this effort.
