Transportation energy demand growth driven by commerce

  • Global transportation-related energy demand grows close to 30 percent from 2016 to 2040
  • Personal mobility demands continue to increase, but higher efficiency and more electric vehicles lead to a peak and decline in light-duty vehicle energy demand
  • Growth in economic activity and personal income drives increasing trade of goods and services, leading to higher energy demand in the commercial transportation sector
