ENERGY CONSERVATION THROUGH URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

A large number of techniques for conserving energy in urban passenger transport are described. A systems approach for evaluating these simultaneously in order to formulate areawide passenger transportation energy policy is presented. It consists of a simple computer technique for estimating the conservation value of various schemes. The program is also of value in assessing the energy impact of individual energy conserving programs. Because only local planners are familiar with the economic, environmental, and political constraints on policy and programs, the tool is intended for use in urban regions. It is, however, written in general terms and as such, if used in all urban areas in the U.S. Could offer realistic national estimates of urban passenger transportation energy requirements in the short term (0-10 yr). /Author/TRRL/
