Transport intensity in Europe -- indicators and trends
There is increasing interest in how transport intensity can be improved. Improvements in energy intensity across all sectors as a whole (rather the transport sector in specific) have been reported in a number of European countries but the extent to which transport intensity has improved has not been examined in so much detail. Using international statistical sources for all European countries, and detailed data for the UK, this paper explores a number of indicators of transport intensity, examines recent trends in transport intensity and examines how intensity has changed over time. The paper contributes to understanding about the definition of transport intensity and changes in transport intensity in European Member States.
