Driver response model Norwegian road freight transport 1993-2013


An in-depth study to understand both indirect and direct drivers behind energy use in freight transport has not been done in a Norwegian setting. The objectives of this study are to develop a theoretical model of growth in road-freight transport in Norway by identifying the likely drivers of such growth and to explain how these drivers have contributed to the growth in energy use from road-freight transport. Some of the drivers may have strongly accelerated energy use, while others have mitigated it. We will also consider whether there has been a shift of freight from sea and rail to road.
