Scenarios for the Future Energy Demand and CO2-Emissions from the Global Transport Sector 982216

A computer model has been developed to assess the energy consumption and the CO2-emissions from the global transport sector as a function of the transport demand, the vehicle and propulsion technologies, the driving behavior and the fuels used. Results are the energy consumption and the CO2-emissions of single vehicles and of vehicle fleets for all modes of transport. Using this model, four different scenarios for the future energy consumption of the global transport sector up to 2100 have been defined using different options for the future development. For the calculations the countries of the world have been categorized into 17 regions according to the geographical and economical situation.
