INVESTIGATING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LAND USE PLANNING, TRANSPORTATION AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION

The objective of the study was to increase the understanding of the relationship among land use, transportation accessibility and energy consumption in an urban context. The issues addressed include: (1) How transportation accessibility and land use planning interact for increased energy conservation; (2) The role the public sector plays with regard to incorporating and integrating transportation, land use and energy conservation; and (3) The institutional and/or technical barriers for better integration of energy, transportation and land use considerations. The study combines an extensive literature survey in the subject areas with field case studies in five urban areas: Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; Toronto, Canada; San Francisco, CA.; Miami, FL.
