ENERGY SAVINGS WITHIN THE TRANSPORT SECTOR

ENERGIBESPARINGAR INOM TRANSPORTSEKTIORN

The purpose of this study is to estimate the energy savings potential within the transportation sector in the period until 1990. The study is based on a forecast (sind pm 1977:5) on the development of the energy consumption within the sector. According to the forecast, the expected annual increase is 1.5 percent during the period until 1990. The report discusses the energy savings potential for all types of transport with regard to the following: transport demand and community structure; better planning, more effective transport organization and a change-over from one mode of transport to another; better vehicle operation and maintenance; technical innovation. Two energy saving alternatives are arrived at. In the lower alternative, the obtainable savings have been estimated to be 3 percent, and for the higher alternative 14 percent in comparison with the sind forecast, which means a reduction in the expected annual increase to 1.3 and .4 percent. /TRRL/
