ENERGY EVALUATION OF URBAN MODES AND SYSTEMS: IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW YOU MEASURE IT

Pitfalls encountered in energy analysis are identified in this introductory overview to a conference session on Urban Transport Modes and Systems. Examples are presented both for the comparison of modes or systems, and for divergent results from different analyses. Some working definitions of urban modes and systems are suggested, along with several different criteria of comparison with caveats for what is or is not included. Requirements for the energy assessment of an urban area's transportation system--present--are summarized.
