POLICY ON ENERGY FOR TRANSPORTATION

The paper discusses guidelines for the development of a policy for transportation designed to satisfy a future society. Present day forms of transportation relying on an exhaustible source of energy must ultimately come to a halt. With forecasts of world oil production declining after about the year 2000, an alternative energy source is necessary with hydro- or nuclear-produced electricity an obvious choice. This would allow dwindling oil stocks to be used by petrochemical industries and air transport until converted to other forms of energy. The paper sets out guidelines for phasing out transportation by petrol- and oil-burning engines and the development of intra-city and inter-city forms of public transport.
