Transportation Efficiency Next to electric power, transportation is the second largest source of energy use in the United States. That’s why VEIC has focused an extensive part of our work on improving the way transportation is viewed, used, regulated, legislated, and funded.

The Transportation Energy Data Book: Edition 28 is a statistical compendium prepared and published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) under contract with U.S Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Vehicle Technologies Program and the Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and Infrastructure Technologies Program.

    Energy Efficiency looks at why efficiency’s massive potential remains untapped, and through the new Efficient World Scenario explores what would happen if countries maximized all available cost-effective efficiency potential between now and , highlighting what policy makers can do to realise this opportunity.   Total energy efficiency gains in passenger travel, mainly due to efficiency gains in the aviation sector, were offset by energy efficiency losses in freight transportation. Between and , the growth rate in transportation activity was slightly greater than the annual % increase in energy consumption, which grew from quadrillion.

Energy Efficiency in Air Transportation explores the relationship between air transportation and energy use, starting with an analysis of air transport energy sources and their potential development. The book examines how different elements of the air transport system make use of energy, with an analysis of various methods for optimizing energy.

The Transportation Energy Data Book: Edition 37 is a statistical compendium prepared and published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Vehicle Technologies Office.

Designed for use as a desk-top. The Transportation Energy Data Book (TEDB) is a compendium of Energy efficiency in transportation book on transportation with an emphasis on energy. The TEDB is produced by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the U.S.

Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Vehicle Technologies Office. Edition is the latest edition. Transportation accounted for 69% of U.S.

petroleum use in. The Global Commission for Urgent Action on Energy Efficiency will examine how progress on energy efficiency can be rapidly accelerated through new and stronger policy action by governments across the globe.

It will develop a series of actionable recommendations that will be announced in the summer of The IEA is the global authority for.

Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain.

With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology evaluation, and policies/strategies Book Edition: 1.

Energy Efficiency: Concepts and Calculations is the first book of its kind to provide an applied, systems oriented description of energy intensity and efficiency in modern economies across the entire energy chain.

With an emphasis on analysis, specifically energy flow analysis, lifecycle energy accounting, economic analysis, technology. The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy.

Section outlines energy use for U.S. transportation overall. Passenger and freight transport are covered in Sections andrespectively. Section briefly discusses the effects of alternative fuels on the efficiency of highway vehicles.

Much of the discussion in this chapter is “vehicle-centric” in the sense that it focuses on. Passenger-Miles per Gallon.

Passenger-miles per gallon (pmpg) is a metric for comparing mass transit and rideshare with typical passenger vehicle travel. Transportation system efficiency increases as the number of passengers increases or as the vehicle fuel economy increases for each transportation mode.

Energy Efficiency by Transportation Mode. Source: adapted from J.D. Chapman () Geography and Energy: Commercial Energy Systems and National Policies, New York: Longman Scientific & Technical.

Within the transport sector there are significant differences between speed, energy costs, mode and type of loads (freight and passengers). The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announced a $1 million Water Resource Recovery Prize.

Janu Prizes Powered by the Ocean. Febru Last fall I participated in the White House Summit on Ocean Science and Technology, where leaders discussed advancing ocean energy technologies.

Transportation currently accounts for the largest proportion of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions of any sector (27%) and approximately 70% of U.S.

oil use. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards (and sincethe accompanying greenhouse gas emissions standards), have had the largest impact of any U.S. energy efficiency policy. Energy Efficient Transportation for America Page 3 • Further Improving Efficiency for Passenger Vehicles: President Obama has proposed new fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards that are estimated to increase average vehicle fuel efficiency to roughly miles per gallon by if all improvements are madeFile Size: KB.

The program, built to complement a school or school district’s purchase of a solar energy system, trains educators and offers classroom instruction for K and college-level students, giving them hands-on opportunities "to build problem-solving skills and connect the dots between difficult math and science concepts and real-world applications.".

The industrial age of energy and transportation will be over by Maybe before. Exponentially improving technologies such as solar, electric vehicles, and autonomous (self-driving) cars will disrupt and sweep away the energy and transportation industries as we know it/5().

Transportation System Efficiency. Efficient transportation systems achieve transportation goals (such as enabling people to get to work or goods to be delivered) while reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT).

Reducing VMT reduces overall transportation costs, while making the nation’s fleet more resilient and less susceptible to fuel price. Put the hero of energy taskforce into spotlight. Jim illustrated how energy efficiency is the key factor that reduces energy intensitty over 40 years in US.

Even though the book is a bit single-themed, it hit the point and makes readers think not too little about consumer side of. Energy efficiency in transportation. New York: United Nations, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, International government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: United Nations.

Department for Development Support and Management Services. Energy Branch. ISBN: As part of the America's Energy Future project, Real Prospects for Energy Efficiency in the United States examines the potential for reducing energy demand through improving efficiency by using existing technologies, technologies developed but not yet utilized widely, and prospective technologies.

The book evaluates technologies based on their. The efficiencies of present-day modes of transportation are reviewed. Future sustainable options are discussed.

Transportation takes about 20% of the energy use worldwide [], and this figure is likely to fact that transportation requires some form of mobile energy storage makes this topic especially challenging for the post-fossil-fuel by: 3.

Petroleum is the main source of energy for transportation. Inpetroleum products accounted for about 92% of the total U.S. transportation sector energy use. Biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, contributed about 5%.

Natural gas accounted for about 3%, most of which was used in natural gas pipeline compressors.Browse Transportation > Sustainable & Energy Efficient Transportation eBooks to read online or download in EPUB or PDF format on your mobile device and PC.
