Emission and energy evaluation principles for transport systems; Emissions- och energivaerderingsprinciper foer transportsystem

Technical Report:

Abstract

As environmental issues are gaining in importance, the use of energy and emission factors is becoming more frequent in research, investigations etc. The purpose of the factors is to show how energy- and environment-effective the transports are and they are often used for comparisons between different transport modes. The aim of the report is to propose calculation principles that give correct comparisons. The transport work of the transport mode is commonly used as a measure of its performance. The report presents suggestions for corrections with respect to the utilization of the transport mode (volume goods) and differences in real transport distance. Suggested calculation bases build on the principles of high utilization and shortest transport distance respectively. For combined transport modes, such as ferries combining passengers and cargo, a special method for dividing energy consumption and exhaust gas emissions has been designed. Suggested methods have been designed in such a way that available transport statistics can be used. 15 refs., 9 figs., 22 tabs
