POTENTIAL ENERGY SAVINGS IN THE LIGHT-VEHICLE, LONG-HAUL-TRUCK, AND BUS MARKET SECTORS

The potential oil and gas savings that could be realized in the transportation sector are calculated for the years 1980, 1985, and 2000. To date, two market sectors have been analyzed; light vehicles (automobiles, light trucks, and vans) and large vehicles (long haul trucks and buses). These analyses are described. Potential savings are identified at the physical system and operational option level and then aggregated by generic approach. The potential generic approach savings are further aggregated by market sectors. The physical systems and operational options investigated are shown in the transportation sector tree.
