GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy Savings from Information and Communications Technologies in Personal Travel

Title:
Energy Savings from Information and Communications Technologies in Personal Travel

Abstract:
This report surveys transportation-sector strategies that use information and communications technologies (ICT) and have the potential to save energy. These include car and bike sharing, real-time transit information, in-vehicle ICT applications, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, and workplace-based transportation demand management (TDM) programs. For each of these strategies, we estimate energy savings in the near term (2015) and the potential for longer-term savings once the applications have been fully phased in. Not including interactive effects among the measures, we project total energy savings of approximately 13% by 2030 from the six surveyed strategies.
