The prime objective of MIDAS is to encourage transfer to less energy intense modes of transport by optimising the use of soft measures aimed at reducing demand for private motorised transport. The project responds to Key Action VKA9 of the STEER Programme.
STEER projects promote the more sustainable energy use in transport (i.e. increased energy efficiency, new and renewable fuel sources, and the take-up of alternatively propelled vehicles). The specific focus is on alternative vehicle propulsion, policy measures for the more efficient use of energy in transport, and strenghthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field.
