Managing Transport Energy

Warren, J. P. ed. (2007). Managing Transport Energy. Power for a Sustainable Future, 3. Oxford: Oxford University Press, in association with The Open University.



How can we provide clean, safe, sustainable energy supplies for transport systems in Britain, Europe and the world as a whole during the twenty-first century, despite rising population levels, increasing affluence and growing mobility? Managing Transport Energy reviews the effects of transport by focussing on the key factors which offer ways of decoupling transport from intensive energy use and shows how it is possible to analyse and model various scenarios. The overall approach is interdisciplinary - covering all aspects of managing ground transport energy. Technology driven issues, such as vehicle power-trains, fuels, future fuels are explained using extensive diagrams. ‘Softer’ issues such as car sharing, travel plans and mobility management are given equal coverage. Readers of this text should be to improve their understanding of the complex issues at stake as well as some of the potential solutions to reducing energy dependence in this growing field.
