Abstract [en]

Elicitation and processing of the relevant information is the core of any policy decision-making process. This study presents a prescriptive policy analysis for the “fossil-free fuel deployment for public transport buses at the national level in Sweden”, using a policy-oriented modelling and simulation tool, Sense4us , that supports systems analysis for policy involving:: (i) Structuring of policy problems using the labelled causal mapping method [11], (ii) Ex ante Impact assessment using scenario-based dynamic simulation modelling and (iii) Ex-ante evaluation of the considered policy options based on the simulation results and using a set of standard criteria for evaluation of EU policy interventions. The results are most of all useful for designing a policy pathway for public bus transport that is both environmentally sustainable and economically feasible. Moreover, the process allows involvement of the key stakeholders to reflect various priorities and preferences.
