The Transportation Energy Data Book (TEDB) is a compendium of data 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. It focused instead on the use of more energy-efficient modes of transportation as a means of achieving energy savings (for example, using mass transit or freight rail in place of Page Share Cite Suggested Citation: "3 Energy Efficiency in Transportation.".

Shift from less to more energy efficient transport modes The various transport modes can vary greatly in terms of primary energy efficiency, even with similar levels of loading. A mode could fare better under different circumstances.

PLANE The short flight and small aircraft size (fewer fliers), compounded by the intense fuel-burn of take-off and landing, reduce efficiency. Collectively the Administration’s energy actions are improving the efficiency of heavy and light duty vehicles, encouraging the use of alternative fuels through the Renewable Fuel Standard, and developing technologies for advanced vehicles and fuels.

(DOT) is fostering an energy efficient transportation system across all modes of transportation. This chapter presents an introductory and broad overview of how different modes of transportation use energy to produce movement and how this may impact the environment.

It shows how to determine the forces of resistance to motion (FRM) and that may be divided into natural forces of resistance to motion (NFRM) and forces needed to change speed (FNCS).

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.

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 era.

Unfortunately, very limited behavioral research can be found in the literature. This book covers major transport modes in. The modes of transportation typically used in open-cut mines are mainly truck transportation, belt conveyor transportation, and a combination of the two modes.

With regard to the differences between mines, a unified energy efficiency model was established to calculate the energy efficiency of different modes of transportation in open-cut mines. Get this from a library.

This graph shows the energy consumption (in gasoline gallon equivalents [GGEs]) of the U.S. transportation sector by mode and fuel type for the year For the most part, each transportation mode is dominated by a different fuel type. Light-duty vehicles use the most GGEs of fuel per year, followed by medium/heavy trucks and buses.

This guide provides information on how school districts, as extensions of local government, have planned and implemented programs to improve energy efficiency in existing school buildings and to incorporate energy efficiency .Energy use: Transportation energy use increased by 28% between andand by almost 45% between and Energy use was about 4% lower in as compared to Energy intensity index: Energy intensity over the entire period from through declined 30%.
