Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The lives of people around the world, particularly in developed countries, depend on the movement of people and goods at low prices. This book sets out the challenges we are currently facing to our dependence on bargain-priced transport, particularly climate change and the end of cheap oil, and proposes responses to ensure effective, secure movement of people and goods in ways that minimize environmental impacts and make the best use of renewable sources of energy."Transport Revolutions" synthesizes engineering, economics, environment, organization, policy and technology, and draws extensively on current data to present important conclusions. The authors argue that transport in the first half of the 21st century will feature at least two revolutions. One will involve the use of electric drives rather than internal combustion engines. The other will involve powering these drives directly from the electric grid - as trams and trolley buses are powered today - rather than from on-board fuel. They go on to discuss marine transport, whose future is less clear and discuss how aviation could see the most dramatic breaks from current technology and usage." Transport Revolutions" provides expert analysis of the politics and business of transport and offers suggestions for how these must and will undergo radical change in the decades ahead.

Inhaltsangabe:

Transport Revolutions: Moving People and Freight without Oil sets out the challenges to our growing dependence on transport fuelled by low-priced oil. These challenges include an early peak in world oil production and profound climate change resulting in part from oil use. It proposes responses to ensure effective, secure movement of people and goods in ways that make the best use of renewable sources of energy while minimizing environmental impacts. Transport Revolutions synthesizes engineering, economics, environment, organization, policy and technology, and draws extensively on current data to present important conclusions. The authors argue that land transport in the first half of the 21st century will feature at least two revolutions. One will involve the use of electric drives rather than internal combustion engines. Another will involve powering many of these drives directly from the electric grid - as trains and trolley buses are powered today - rather than from on-board fuel. They go on to discuss marine transport, whose future is less clear, and aviation, which could see the most dramatic breaks from current practice. With its expert analysis of the politics and business of transport, Transport Revolutions is essential reading for professionals and students in transport, energy, town planning and public policy.
