ENERGY SAVING MEASURES IN TRAFFIC AND THEIR EVALUATION BY MEANS OF COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS

ENERGIESPARMASSNAHMEN IM STRASSENVERKEHR UND IHRE BEWERTUNG MIT HILFE DER NUTZEN-KOSTEN-ANALYSE

Using five measures, this report gives an insight into a scheme for cost - benefit evaluation of energy saving measures in traffic: 1) preference for diesel cars (instead of cars with otto motors); 2) turning right on the red light after being stopped at a traffic light controlled junction; 3) formation of car pools; 4) adjustable radiator fans; 5) the erection of pedestrian over-passes. The aim of these evaluation schemes is to examine possible measures for energy sparing in the context of their suitability and effectiveness and also to reach decisions regarding their priority and how to implement them. In the scheme, cost and benefits of actual measures are first compared with one another and then the cost benefit ratios of the measures studied are compared. (TRRL)
