Methodology explanation

Source & methodology

MARKAL input assumptions have been used. DfT and CCC have not signed these off and their use is very much as a first test of numbers and model process.  

In order to derive a range for the cost figures, 2000 figures are used for the high and 2050 for the low where these differ in MARKAL.  For International Aviation there is only a range for the OPEX category.

MARKAL costs in billion veh kms per annum are converted into vehicles required using MARKAL estimates of average annual kms for aviation. Costs then spread over assumed life-time per technology using MARKAL estimates of vehicle life. Each trajectory in the 2050 Calculator indicates distances by technology. These are converted into vehicles required using MARKAL assumption of average annual km by technology and the resultant required vehicles is costed against the per unit cost.

Issues and cross checks

Need to consider issues around scrappage rates costs and residual values.
