ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN PASSENGER AND GOODS TRAFFIC IN SWEDEN - A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS. APPENDIX
ENERGIEFFEKTIVITETEN FOER PERSON- OCH GODSTRANSPORTER I SVERIGE-EN JAEMFOERANDE ANALYS. APPENDIX
The three appendices contain background material to the main report. Appendix A shows the sampling of vehicles etc. and how direct energy use varies within different means of transport. Furthermore, it shows energy use for manufacturing and maintenance of vehicles. Finally, energy use is re-estimated after taking conversion losses etc. into consideration. Appendix B treats energy use in relation to construction and maintenance of infrastructure. Also in this case the results are recalculated into "crude oil equivalents". Appendix C discusses the principles for energy conversion that are used in appendices A and B. It also analyzes energy consumption in the production of materials. Furthermore, specifications of materials are presented. (In appendix A the total energy use is estimated, taking into consideration specification, production and average waste of materials, assembling of parts etc.) Energy consumption is given in the form of electricity or as non-renewable fuels. Only final results are recalculated into crude oil equivalents. If not otherwise stated, all figures relate to the mid-70's.
