POTENTIAL ENERGY CONSERVATION IN URBAN COMMODITY FLOW

The paper is based on a case study of the urban goods movements in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a medium-size city of one-half million population. Firstly it provides an overview of the role of urban goods movement in the national economic and energy context and then proceeds to a discussion of short term and long term strategies for fuel conservation. It is concluded that there is no single solution approach to the problem because of the large number of authorities and institutions involved in urban goods movement. However, it is evident that there is the potential for significant fuel savings within the total package of transportation systems management alternatives and driver education. /TRRL/
