Title:Urban Transportation Energy Accounts: Methods and Procedures With a Case Study of the Chicago Region

Abstract:Methods of computing direct energy accounts for urban person travel are described. These accounts are compiled by mode, trip purpose, time of day, and origin-destination pair, and are designed to be compatible with existing transportation planning software and datasets. Equilibrium assignment paths are traced to calculate zone-to-zone fuel consumption of automobile trips based on link speeds and distances. All-or-nothing assignment paths are traced to calculate zone-to-zone energy consumption of public transit trips based on modal vehicle kilometers per person trip along each minimum impedance path. The final accounts are separate matrices of zone-to-zone energy consumption for both public and private modes that can be summarized in tables or displayed graphically. Results from a case study of the Chicago metropolitan area are presented.
