INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ENERGY SUPPLY AND TRANSPORTATION-RELATED ENERGY USE. VOLUME I
This report describes the structure of ENTRANS and some of its policy analysis applications. ENTRANS is a computer simulation model of the interactions between energy supply and transportation-related energy use. It includes a complete representation of the characteristics of transportation supply (public transit, carpooling, highways, and autos) and of households' travel-related decisions (car type, travel mode, trip length, and frequency choices). The model is capable of analyzing a wide range of policies designed to change automobile fuel use. The results of several detailed policy analyses are described in this report.
