ENERGY-CONSUMPTION OF DIFFERENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

ENERGIEVERBRUIK VAN VERSCHILLENDE TRANSPORTSYSTEMEN

The transport sector depends on fifty-nine percent of oil products for fuel. Until recently the consumption of fuel was a relatively unimportant factor of cost in the exploitation of transport vehicles. Currently, however, interest in the energy components of transport systems is markedly increasing. With the help of a literature survey a comparison is made of the fuel consumption of different transport systems, for instance lorry, bus, metro, railway, rapid transit system, aerotrain, hovertrain and future transport modes. /TRRL/
