SOME PROBLEMS OF DEFINITION RAISED BY A TRANSPORTATION ENERGY DATA BASE

Oak Ridge National Laboratory has addressed the definitional problems in its development of a transportation energy data base for the Department of Energy. One is the fundamental problem of analyzing the notion of energy consumption itself. The second definitional problem is that of distinguishing between energy used for transportation from that used for other purposes. The distinction can be reasonably drawn in a number of ways, and the paper explores the implications and usefulness of a few of these ways.
