SPATIAL ENERGY ANALYSIS. MODELS FOR STRATEGIC DECISIONS IN AN URBAN AND REGIONAL CONTEXT. CHAPTER 17. DIRECT AND INDIRECT TRANSPORTATION ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN URBAN TRAVEL MARKETS

This paper uses the energy accounts developed by Boyce et al for person trips in Northeastern Illinois. They are applied to estimate the energy consumed by person trips in regional scenarios concerning the future location of employment and homes, the investment and divestment in public transport, and the level of transport fares. The energy accounts are tabulated for the various travel markets identified in the Strategic Plan of Regional Planning Authority serving Northeastern Illinois. The energy accounting framework is described first, with special emphasis being put on the empirical automobile fuel consumption functions employed. The location and travel choice model used to estimate future travel for each scenario is then explained. The scenarios for the Northeastern Illinois region are explained, and the estimates of future travel and energy consumption for these scenarios are presented. The validity of the results is then discussed. For the covering abstract of the book see IRRD 864829.
