The historical background to modern transport and the transport revolution as a decisive factor in the changes affecting agriculture, industry and energy in the 19th and 20th centuries. 2. The basic features of the energy equilibrium. The three post-war periods: pre-1958; 1958-1972; post-1972. 3. Transport of energy and raw materials since the end of the second world war and the outlook for the decade 1975-1985. 4. Government energy policies following the 1973 crisis, and their possible impact on transport. 5. The long-term prospects arising from the effects on transport of the changes in energy availability. 6. Conclusions. The number of the covering abstract for the symposium is IRRD no. 221684. /TRRL/
