summary of conclusions
Summary of conclusions
  • contextual differences and differing definitions and methods of measurement result in inconsistencies across energy efficiency findings
  • nevertheless the weight of evidence indicates that non-motorised modes are the most energy efficient, most affordable and least polluting passenger travel modes – followed by electric rail and diesel bus public transport modes
  • the weight of evidence further indicates that the low occupancy motor car is the least energy efficient, most unaffordable and most polluting of passenger travel modes
  • consequently any strategy to improve a city’s energy efficiency would need to both promote the use of non-motorised and public transport modes, and, because private transport will remain an important even if reduced travel mode, promote the introduction of more efficient and cleaner technologies, operations and fuels
