EDIP is a (Computable General Equilibrium) CGE model of 31 European countries. The primary aim of the model is to assess transport policy impacts on equity and on income distribution, but it also assesses energy and environmental effects.

EDIP models the production and consumption activities of 59 sectors and related products. Each sector has emissions, which are coupled partially to the production activities and partially to the energy use. The labour market has been strongly developed, where wages differ by level of education, profession and sector. This is linked to the welfare of 5 income quintiles. The transport sector in the model has been developed in detail, where data of TREMOVE are incorporated in the model for complex analysis of transport problems. The current base year for the datasets is 2009, which is the year of the latest available input-output tables from EUROSTAT. The EDIP models are useful for simulating transport and environment policy, but differ from other models in the sense that they add visibility on the social dimension of the policy.

The model includes 31 countries: EU27 + NO, CH, TR, HR with the following characteristics (one model per country):

- several household types with nested-CES utility function
* five income classes
* three population density classes
* six family types

- 59 commodities, used in production and consumption
- 61 production factors: capital, labour and commodities
detailed modeling of transport consumption by firms and households
two distance classes
three transport modes
own production of transportation by road (durables/non-durables)
