KAPSARC Transport Analysis Framework (KTAF)

Go to the application

Tool Overview

The KAPSARC Transport Analysis Framework (KTAF), is a tool for estimating freight transport activity and measuring the impact of transport policy measures using freely available global data sources, satellite images and nighttime lights.

 

Our methodology offers a solution to inadequate data access and allows for scenario building in policy planning for transportation. This approach allows for quick estimation of the effects of policy measures and economic changes on transportation activities at a global level.

 

The application is available in both Arabic and English. For more detail on the methodology supporting the KTAF web application, refer to the download section of the help page.

Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator

Go to the application

Tool Overview

Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator is designed to address the research question: What are Saudi Arabia’s domestic energy policy options for a sustainable and resilient energy future?

 

Energy policy choices in Saudi Arabia can affect the domestic output of CO2 and other emissions, impact consumer costs, and alter energy export revenues. This easy-to-use tool illustrates the interactions and cumulative effects of some of the most common measures that are used around the world to help lower emissions and improve energy efficiency. The Saudi Arabia Energy Policy Simulator (EPS) is a free and open-source computer model jointly created by Energy Innovation LLC and the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC).

 

The Energy Policy Simulator allows you to examine the effects of potential energy policies, build your own policy package, and see immediately how shifts in policy variables can change the outcomes. Try it using the button below or see the documentation for a downloadable, customizable version.
