Despite targets to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and the prospect of petroleum resources becoming increasingly scarce, road transport energy use is at an all-time peak in many countries. How can our transport system survive into the future? What must change, and how can these changes beimplemented?Managing Transport Energy tackles head-on the challenges of managing transport and its energy use in the current world. Taking a truly interdisciplinary approach to the subject, it integrates the technological aspects of energy supply and issues of energy conservation with the social andbehavioural issues of energy use.Examining the technological options that are available to us - including hybrid engines, biofuels, and hydrogen cells - the book goes on to explore how sustainable transport policies can be developed to make the most of emerging technologies, while reducing our dependence on the energy systems usedmost heavily today.Having a sustainable transport infrastructure is a vital part of our future; Managing Transport Energy is the ideal resource for anyone wishing to develop a broad, balanced understanding of this important field.Online Resource CentreThe Online Resource Centre features figures from the book available to download, for adopters of the text.
