PERSONAL TRAVEL ENERGY CONSUMPTION: ACCOUNTING METHODS AND CASE STUDY FOR THE CHICAGO METROPOLITAN AREA

This study of urban personal travel in the Chicago area attempted to (a) establish an accounting framework that could keep track of energy consumption for urban passenger transportation, (b) develop tools for calculating energy consumption, and (c) run through prototype applications of the methodology developed in the project. This report documents the methodology and presents a case study of peak period person travel consumption. The methodology is a logical and marginal extension of the current state-of-the-art urban transportation models. The case study of peak period person travel in the Chicago metropolitan area provides data on energy usage and formats for displaying this data. Energy accounting procedures are reviewed and the advantages of energy origin-destination tables are discussed.
