      Energy Consumption by Transportation Mode in the United States, (in Trillion BTUs) Road accounts for about 84% of all the energy consumed by transportation in the United States and this share has remained relatively constant in time.

Energy‐efficient transportation strategies and renewable fuels have the potential to simultaneously reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Get this from a library. Saving energy in U.S. transportation. [United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.;] -- This report assesses an array of transportation policies designed to reduce energy use and describes the intersection of these policies with general transportation problems such as congestion and air.

This chapter describes the U.S. transportation system and its energy consumption. It identifies near-term (through ) opportunities for energy efficiency and the technologies that could capitalize on them.

(See Box for definitions of fuel efficiency, fuel economy, and fuel consumption.) It. Petroleum is the main source of energy for transportation. Inpetroleum products accounted for about 92% of the total U.S. transportation sector energy use.

Biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, contributed about 5%. Natural gas accounted for about 3%, most of which was used in natural gas pipeline compressors. This venerable book has been updated several times since its initial publication in and is now in its 10th edition.

There are two ways to decrease the environmental impact of fossil fuels and to defer their ultimate exhaustion at the same time.

The first is to increase the efficiency of our current fossil energy use, and the second is to develop alternative, non-fossil energy sources such as geothermal, wind, water, solar, and nuclear energy.

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) leads U.S. researchers and other partners in making transportation cleaner and more efficient through solutions that put electric drive vehicles on the road and replace oil with clean domestic fuels.
