Abstract

Summary:

The transport sector accounts for c.30% of the UK’s final energy consumption and c.25% of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The transport sector also faces other challenges that can affect energy demand and GHG emissions, including: increasing demand, changing behaviour and trends, affordability, air quality, safety, capacity and reliability. Decarbonisation strategies will have to consider these factors, and the impacts upon the wider energy sector; similarly, the energy sector will impact upon these transport decarbonisation strategies, including through competition for low-carbon energy sources.

The purpose of this work is to consider the trade-offs between different factors in the transport sector, and interactions with the energy sector, to determine the implications for energy demand and GHG emissions.
