Title: Transportation energy conservation data book: Supplement III

Abstract

This document is Supplement III to Edition I of the Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book (ORNL-5198; EAPA 3:527), which was published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in October 1976. This series of documents is intended to provide a desk-top reference for use by the Transportation Energy Conservation Division of the Energy Research and Development Administration. The supplements contain statistics that expand and refine data presented in Edition I. A variety of tables, charts, maps, and graphs is used in this volume to present statistical data on energy use and energy-related activity in the transportation sector. A major aspect of the data in this supplement focuses on energy supply to the transportation sector. Data on characteristics of transportation modes, fuel consumption characteristics, and conservation alternatives are also included in this supplement and serve to augment and update information presented in Edition I. The glossary represents a significant expansion. A list of references is provided, an index, and an annotated bibliography (showing recent acquisitions) are included at the end of this supplement.

  • This document is the fourth in a series of supplements to ORNL-5198, Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book: Edition I (EAPA 3:527). The Data Book series is being compiled and published by ORNL under contract with the Transportation Energy Conservation (TEC) Division of the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA). Data on transportation characteristics, energy consumption, and other related variables are presented in tabular or graphic form. For the user's reference, a glossary, a bibliography, energy conversion factors, and an index to information presented in Supplement IV are provided. Some of the specific items presented on transportation modal characteristics include fleetmore » vehicular stock data, automobile choice and ownership characteristics, information describing commuting and long distance travel patterns, new car sales by market segment, electric vehicle production, and statistics on bicycle stock and usage. Transportation energy demand projections in general, and in detail for the marine sector, are presented, as well as sales-weighted miles per gallon figures by weight of automobile, model year, and automobile producer. Other transportation-related information included in Supplement IV are a graphic presentation of President Carter's tax-rebate schedule, a comparison of the nominal and real price of gasoline, and a descriptive list of the current safety standards. Finally, detailed data on the US total population and its migration patterns are presented. The second edition of the TEC Data Book will update and integrate the information provided in Edition I and the Supplements. The planned date of publication for this document is October, 1977.« less
  • This document is Supplement I to Edition I of the Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book, ORNL-5198, which was published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in October 1976. The first edition and this supplement are intended to provide a desk-top reference for use by the Transportation Energy Conservation Division of the Energy Research and Development Administration. This supplement contains statistics which update and augment data presented in Edition I. A variety of tables, charts, maps, and graphs are used in this volume to present statistical data on energy use and energy related activity through the following topics: (1) Characteristics of Transportationmore » Modes including information on Air, Rail, Water Vessels, and Pipelines; (2) Energy Characteristics including information on Energy Consumption and Energy Intensity; (3) Government Impacts and Government Regulations. A list of references is provided at the end of each chapter supplement, and an annotated bibliography and glossary are included at the end of the supplement. In particular, nonhighway transportation activities received less emphasis than highway activities in Edition I. Therefore, this supplement presents additional data in this area. Also, detailed data on fuel consumption and energy intensiveness of the various modes is included in this document. Periodic updates will ensure the availability of recently released data.« less
  • The data book represents an assembly and display of statistics that characterize transportation activity and presents data on other factors that influence transportation energy use. The purpose of this publication is to present a large amount of relevant data in an easily retrievable and usable format with the statistical data shown in the form of tables and graphs. Each of the major tansportation modes (highway, air, rail, and pipeline) is treated in separate chapters or sections, although aggregate energy use and energy supply data for all modes are presented in Chap. 1. The highway mode, accounting for over 77% ofmore » total transportation energy consumption, is dealt with in Chap. 2. Topics in this chapter include vehicle stock characteristics, fuel efficiency, household vehicle ownership and use, fleet automobiles, buses, and trucks. Chap. 3 presents data on each of the nonhighway modes: air, water, pipeline, and rail, respectively. The final chapter, Chap. 4, summarizes historical trends in transportation activity.« less
  • Separate abstracts are prepared for the six main chapters on the various characteristics of the transportation sector. Chapter 7 provides the compilation of reference materials, and additionally, sections are devoted to a glossary, keyword index, and permuted-title index. (MCW)
