Transport And Uk Energy Policy
In: The Uk Energy Experience A Model or A Warning?
AbstractThe interaction between transport and UK energy policy has changed over time in response to fluctuations in economic and social priorities and as technology and scientific knowledge has developed. The key link between current UK transport and energy policies is via the environmental concern over the damage associated with CO2 emissions. Transport is a major and growing contributor to global warming gas emissions and, while other forms of environmental damage may be reduced by various forms of technological end-of-pipe treatments, quick-fix technical solutions to the CO2 problem are not available. This contribution outlines the main underlying issues associated with the links between transport, energy and the environment, sets out potential policy responses and discusses recent UK policy initiatives.
