What opportunities exist to improve the energy productivity of transport systems?
Transport is a necessary but energy intenstive activity. It therefore follows that strategies that seek to improve the net transport output per unit of energy input will deliver significant benefits in terms of increased economic output, improved economic competitiveness, lower transport costs for households and reduced human health and environmental costs (as a result of lower overall transport emissions).
We have deep experience in the development of transport energy baselines – at both an enterprise and economy wide basis – and help out clients identify genuine opportunities to improve the energy performance of organisational fleets and urban transport systems. We also apply this knowledge for the development of energy baselines for construction plant and equipment, mine vehicle fleets, rail transport and agricultural equipment.
