Energy Efficiency Improvement in the Transport Sector through Transport Improvement and Smart Community Development in the Urban Area

By Mr. Ichiro Kutani (Project Leader)

Posted: December 2012

Outline


Energy demand of East Asia Summit (EAS) countries has been growing rapdily, led largeiy by demand for the power and transport sectors. Demand for transport is dominated by oil, which is increasingly dominated by imports. Increasing the efficiency of transport fuel use is a key priority for EAS countries

A number of studies have been implemented to consider the energy saving potential in the transport sector of Asia through the shifts towards fuel efficient vehicle units. Meanwhile, this study will utilize a simulation model which would be able to analyze the impacts of infrastructure development on the traffic flow and subsequent impacts of the overall transport sector energy efficiency improvement within the rapidly developing Asian cities. The outcomes from the study would provide new insights that would contribute to the sustainable development for the cities of EAS countries with the urban transport improvement through smart community development.
