Energy for Transport

Energy use for transport is growing fast and linked to population and economic growth.  Most of the increase is in road transport though aviation and shipping are also substantially increasing their energy demands.  This paper in the Annual Review of Environment and Resources updates another on the same theme published in ARER by the late Lee Schipper in the mid-1990s. It examines past and possible future trends in the key drivers of energy use in the transport sector using the ASIF framework that Schipper devised (Activity, Structure, Intensity and Fuel). It distinguishes energy used in moving people and freight and considers all the main transport modes.  It concludes that the transition to low-carbon, equitable, sustainable transport may be slow but can be fostered by numerous short and medium term strategies that would also support energy security, health, productivity and wider sustainability.
