Transport and Energy Research attempts to answer the question how to reduce household energy consumption from a behavioral perspective by citing extensive literature reviews and relevant case studies. It adopts a life-oriented approach that emphasizes cross-domain dependencies with respect to various life choices, but also discusses cross-sectoral collaboration for effective transport and energy policymaking. The book focuses not only on the passenger transport sector, but also on the domestics sector. Topics cover autonomous vehicles, time use across space driven by use of information and communication technologies, social issues associated with both transport and energy, and energy-saving lifestyles. This book is a valuable resource for energy researchers, engineers, managers and planners on the current state of research, giving them the knowledge and tactics necessary to reduce energy consumption at the household level.
