CONSERVATION OF FUELS IN THE ST. LOUIS SMSA: PROJECTIONS FROM ALTERNATIVE RESIDENTIAL LAND USE PATTERNS AND TRANSPORTATION STRATEGIES FOR 1995
The research in Chapter One, 'Land Use Patterns and Their Effect on Energy Consumption for the St. Louis SMSA, Projections for 1995', is based on a land use/energy model which uses an actual regional land use plan and local energy data. The results of the model, projected for five alternative residential growth patterns in 1995, indicate that although energy consumed by residential units does not vary significantly with shifts in the location of new residential housing, transportation energy consumption is substantially affected. Chapter Two, 'Energy Conservation Potential of Alternative Transportation Strategies for the St. Louis SMSA', further examines transportation energy consumption by evaluating four energy-conserving transportation strategies.
