Energy & transport: Strategies for energy conservation in urban passenger transport (Research paper - School of Economic and Financial Studies, Macquarie University ; no. 173) by Kirsten Schou



The energy used in road passenger transport enables social and economic development and is the target of interventions to fight pressing urban environmental problems, energy security concerns and dangerous climate change.

Likewise, LEAP was used to describe Beijing's future energy strategies for both a BAU pathway of city develop- ment and for a scenario considering the impact of policies regarding industry, vehicles and building's energy efficiency, fuel substitution and transport modal shift What if São Paulo (Brazil) would like to become a renewable and endogenous energy -based megacity?

Competition in Urban Passenger Transport in the Developing World. Preventive transport strategies for secondary cities Urban Transport Policy: A Sustainable Development Tool. K. Gwilliam KOSTER J. H. and DE LANGEN, . 1998, Preventive transport strategies for secondary cities. International sharing of urban transport experiences may be beneficial for practice and help give form to a concept of strategy. Main problems and issues of urban transport in Colombo, Sri Lanka, were identified, and a strategy was proposed for improving the performance of the transport system for travelers and its impacts on urban development. On the streets of Colombo, buses compete for scarce. space with passenger vehicles, motorcycles, and vans. Crossing bicycle riders and pedestrians have an even more difficult time.

The long-term energy conservation choice problem is conceptualized as a portfolio choice problem. The long-term energy conservation choice problem is conceptualized as a portfolio choice problem. Many studies have attempted to analyze the effect of travel patterns and transportation system design on traveler behavior and thereby on transport emissions

An urban traffic/transport system is a typical giant complex system, as so many constituent elements such as people, cars and roads are interrelated in the system. Similarly, Xia and Jiang (2014) established an SD model for the prediction of transport and socioeconomic factors that considered passenger transport capacity, cargo capacity, pop- ulation, GDP and other major factors in the whole system. This paper evaluates low-carbon urban development strategies for the transport sector in São Paulo, one of the largest cities in the world.

PRACTICAL WAYS FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION Global initiatives Globally energy efficiency has become one of the biggest. New Concerpts in Energy Conservation. Energy Conservation offers a practical means of achieving development goals One series of entries consists of amounts of energy which were consumed during the month in the form of electricity, gas, fuel, oil, steam: and the second series lists how the energy was used: how much for lighting, air conditioning, heating, production processes and other activities. The road transport has increased very fast during last decade or so. One approach to achieve energy conservation is to shift a part of the traffic from road to rail.

However, urban passenger transport system is a very complex task involving multiple criteria related to economic, environmental and socio-political issues. Multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) techniques actually aid the decision making process by assessing such problems.

Considering the global energy shortage, the improvement of energy efficiency is one of the most important tasks in China’s urban passenger transport. But what is the potential improvement and what policies are needed in the next two decades for it. Based on the current situation in China, this paper introduces a methodology and a simple model based on it to calculate the future energy de-mand in the urban passenger transport. The energy demand scenario analysis is used to analyse the different energy demand and the efficiency changes.

In this paper, we built a Beijing urban passenger transport carbon model, including an economy subsystem, population subsystem, transport subsystem, and energy consumption and CO2 emissions subsystem using System Dynamics.

We will be focusing on urban transport energy consumption since this is the greatest challenge and an area in which policies adopted in the near future will have a crucial impact on long term energy consumption. The role of average urban density in urban passenger transport-related energy consumption according to Newman and Kenworthy.
