CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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 be implemented?
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 and
behavioral 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 used most
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.
