Sustainable & Energy Efficient Transportation

  • Transport Phenomena in Fuel Cellsby B. Sunden; M. Faghri

    WIT Press 2005; US$ 298.00

    Fuel cells are expected to play a significant role in the next generation of energy systems and road vehicles for transportation. However, substantial progress is required in reducing manufacturing costs and improving performance. This book aims to contribute to the understanding of the transport processes in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), proton exchange... more...

  • Barriers to Sustainable Transportby Piet Rietveld; Roger R. Stough

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 48.95

    The complexity of transportation systems and their negative social and environmental effects are today at the centre of attention. This book focuses on the impact of institutions and regulatory systems on transport systems and travel behaviour. While institutions appear to play an important role in the economic success of many countries, this book... more...

  • Implementing Sustainable Urban Travel Policiesby Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2004; US$ 46.00

    Hungary in its post-transition period finds itself struggling with several problems in its urban travel systems. Urban roads are increasingly crowded, and car ownership and use are rising. As in many neighbouring cities in Central and Eastern Europe, Hungary's cities are wrestling with how to maintain a highly favourable modal share for their well-developed... more...

  • Fuel Cells: A Technology Forecastby John Vanston; Henry Elliott

    TSTC Publishing 2003; US$ 25.00

    The fuel cell industry is now beginning to acheive its promise and this report is designed to provide insights and data useful in identifying and initiating new technology-related programs in the field. more...

  • Safe and Sustainable Transport: A Matter of Quality Assuranceby Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2003; US$ 84.00

    Road safety is generally a mixture of three components, namely, the road, the vehicle and the driver, or, as also referred to by the ECMT, the infrastructure, the vehicle and human behaviour. Promotion of road safety is more and more possible only through a larger scope of interest -- environment, sustainability, and quality of life. more...

  • Making Urban Transport Sustainableby Nicholas Low; Brendan Gleeson

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 134.00

    Making Urban Transport Sustainable addresses the future of urban transport as a global issue. Money is being poured into roads, railways and airports at a time when the global atmosphere is threatened and oil production has reached its peak. If the world's environment and societies are to be sustained, urban transport has to change. Contributions... more...

  • Strategies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Road Transportby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 33.00

    Road transport accounts for approximately 80% of CO2 emissions emanating from transport, which corresponds to more than 20% of total emissions. This clearly has enormous implications for global climate change. What are the measures and strategies already taken by OECD countries to reduce or stabilise greenhouse gases from road transport? What frameworks... more...

  • Saving Oil and Reducing CO2 Emissions in Transportby OECD Publishing; International Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 125.00

    Transport is the fastest-growing energy sector world-wide. Every year increasing numbers of drivers at the wheels of ever larger vehicles burn more petroleum products and emit more carbon dioxide. The danger is clear. Nations around the world have taken up the challenge to reduce oil use and the CO2 that comes with it. This report examines the multiple... more...

  • The Road from Kyotoby OECD Publishing; International Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 75.00

    More than 27% of total carbon dioxide emissions in OECD countries is produced by the transport sector, and there are still few signs that transportation energy use is peaking. Without new action, the prospects for reductions in CO2 emissions from this sector look bleak. This report reviews transport-related CO2 abatement policies in six IEA countries:... more...

  • Freight Transport and the Environmentby M. Kroon; R. Smit; J. van Ham

    Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95

    In the past few decades, freight transport on roads has grown considerably because of the quick and flexible movement of goods. With an expanding market due to product specialization, there will be an increase in the demand for freight transport. There are however, several negative implications for the environment (air and noise pollution), human... more...
