The transport sector accounts for an increasing proportion of final consumption of energy. It also depends almost entirely on petroleum products. It is therefore vitally important, where the transport sector is concerned, to take further initiatives in order to improve the energy efficiency of transport systems and to encourage the use of alternatives to petroleum products, provided that this has a favourable impact in terms of primary energy (in addition to the possible financial benefits). The proceedings of this symposium discuss the dimensions of the problem, transport demand and energy management, traffic systems control, driving behaviour, energy efficiency in motor vehicles and future issues and perspectives.
