Policy issue:  Reduce consumption of fossil energy by transport

Key messages

  • The growth in energy use by transport jeopardises the EU meeting its targets under the Kyoto protocol

Figures

Key assessment

Transport is the fastest growing energy consumer in the EU: a 47 % increase since 1985, compared with 4.2 % for the other economic sectors. More than 30 % of final energy in the EU is now consumed by transport, and the sector is therefore one of the priority target areas for the Community's Action Plan to Improve Energy Efficiency. In 1998, road transport was responsible for 73 % of transport energy consumption, and aviation and marine bunkering each for about 12 %.
