DEMAND FOR ELECTRICITY BY THE TRANSPORTATION SECTOR OF THE NEW YORK REGION: ANALYSIS AND PROJECTIONS TO 1985

The possible impact of areawide residential location policy on future residential electricity usage in the Tri-State Metropolitan Region centering on New York City is investigated. This report describes electricity consumption by the transportation sector of the New York Region in terms of level, trends and geographical distribution, and compares this information with national trends. A projection methodology is developed whose basic assumption is that the percent of workers using an electric mode in the journey to work will increase if real fuel prices increase. The projections of region-wide electricity consumption by the transportation sector in 1985 are shown for the three cases (high, middle, and low) and also by core, inner ring, and outer ring counties.
