Transport and Energy Research A Behavioral Perspective

by Junyi (Mobilities and Urban Policy Lab, IDEC, Hiroshima University) Zhang

Transport and Energy Research A Behavioral Perspective Synopsis

Transport and Energy Research: A Behavioral Perspective deals with the transport issues associated with energy from a behavioral perspective in an interdisciplinary and systematic way. Existing transport and energy research has focused on technologies and energy efficiency; however, more efficient technologies do not necessarily lead to energy reduction. Unfortunately, very limited behavioral research can be found in the literature. This book covers major transport modes in major countries. It emphasizes the importance of researching the behaviors of not only transport and energy service users, but also transport and energy service providers, policy makers, organizations, company managers, and other stakeholders who are involved in and/or affected by transport and energy policies. It not only overviews the history of relevant research and presents new developments but also extensively discusses the future research issues. Various findings are summarized for reducing energy consumption from a behavioral perspective. This book provides readers with behavioral insights into more effective policymaking. Behavioral interventions are recommended as a key policy instrument for reducing energy consumption in a sustainable way. It provides policy makers with comprehensive insights into making more effective policies over the whole process of policymaking. The book can serve as a handbook for researchers and a textbook for graduate students in the fields of transport, energy, environment, planning, public policy, behavioral studies, and so on.

Transport and Energy Research A Behavioral Perspective Press Reviews

If you have an interest in a truly international perspective that combines a diversity of behavioural thinking, different methods of analysis, a range of policy options, and the involvement of all stakeholders in trying to find the means by which the transport and energy debate can be addressed and resolved, then I urge you to read this book - you will not be disappointed. Dr. David Banister, Professor Emeritus, University of Oxford To the best of my knowledge, this is the first book bringing together behavioral research on transport and energy. ...I agree with the editor's belief that behavioral interventions should be a 'must' in transport and energy policy menus. Dr. Noboru Harata, Professor, The University of Tokyo It is a book for those who want to be serious about understanding the state of research and who are ready to dive into cutting-edge research on behavioral issues of transport, energy, and greenhouse gas emissions. Dr. James L. Sweeney, Professor, Stanford University

About Junyi (Mobilities and Urban Policy Lab, IDEC, Hiroshima University) Zhang

Prof. Junyi Zhang's research fields include urban and regional planning, transportation planning, traffic engineering, environment and energy policies, tourism policy, and health policy in the contexts of both developed and developing countries. He is a professor of Regional and Urban Engineering at Hiroshima University, Japan. Prof. Zhang has developed various methodologies (surveys, modeling, policy evaluation, and planning, etc.) and applied them to analyze various issues related to the above fields from an interdisciplinary perspective, especially focusing on human behavior analysis and systematic approaches for about 25 years. In recent years, he has been especially promoting the life-oriented approach for cross-sectoral policies. ...
