Welcome to ERMES Group

European Research for Mobile Emission Sources

Our mission is to bring together European knowledge on mobile emissions modelling, and to facilitate information exchange and research cooperation.
 
ERMES is a group of research institutions, competent authorities, industry associations, whose mission includes the support of cooperative research in the field of transport emission modelling.

What is ERMES?

What is ERMES?

A permanent network of mobile emission modellers and model users, coordinated and partly funded by the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC).

Acts as an international reference point for mobile emissions modelling and related topics in Europe with an initial focus on road transport, with other modes to follow.

The methodology

Our steps to enhance models

ERMES coordinates European research and emissions measurement programmes needed for the update of mobile emission models. This includes:

• maintenance updates to improve the coverage of new vehicle technologies (e.g., EURO 5 and 6);

• methodological improvements (e.g., evaporative emissions estimation methodology) including periodic reviews of emission models; and

• long-term technological changes and environmental monitoring (e.g., alternative fuels and real-world CO2 emissions).
