Identifying potential energy savings in the Australian road and rail sectors

This report catalogues potential opportunities for energy efficiency improvements in the Australian road transport (heavy duty vehicles only) and rail transport sectors. It was designed to supplement energy efficiency assessments undertaken by transport operators involved in the EEO program (now closed). 

Road transport

The report discusses opportunities for road transport in the following areas:

Alternative drivetrain technologies

Vehicle-based fuel efficiency improvements

Driver and corporate practices

Rail transport

It also includes opportunities for rail transport in the following areas:

Alternative drivetrain technologies

Fuel efficiency improvements

Intermodal transfer improvements
