Transformación del sistema de transporte por el impacto de techo del petróleo
AbstractThe peak oil represents the most important changing influence to which civilization faces. The transport division is especially vulnerable because petroleum is almost (98%) the only energy that is used for the transport of the European Union. Furthermore, this also highlights a special vulnerability in Spain, due to its enormous dependency of petroleum. Finally the changes in the leading paradigm are analyzed (continuous mobility, speed of trip, the distance, as well as the favored use of automobiles) that are occurring because of the effect that the latest increasing of prices has had and the subsequent economic crisis. This analysis allows us to extrapolate the trends derived from a scenario of successive cycles of oil bulls and, therefore, of economic crises, until a drastic reduction in the demand takes place.
