MODELING RESIDENTIAL AND WORKPLACE LOCATION ASSESSMENT ON CAR COMMUTING ENERGY

A model for assessing resident and workplace location on energy use for car commute to work is discussed in this paper. The paper consists of two parts: model design, and assessing simplified location patterns. The model is composed of five submodels: location patterns, commute trip distribution, spatial distribution of commute trip density, road traffic speed, and energy consumption. Three simplified location patterns are set to residence and workplace, respectively; this means nine sets of locations are studied. Population is included in some of the submodels so that the model can apply over a wide range of population size.
