Title: Transportation energy conservation data book: supplement I. [Suppl. to ORNL-5198]

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 Transportation 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 themore » availability of recently released data.« less
