Despite a huge growth in transport services, the increase in energy consumption in the transport sector by 2050 can be limited to 57% under the Energy [R]evolution scenario and 46% in the advanced case. Dependence on fossil fuels for 90% of this supply is transformed by using 7% biofuels and 11% electricity in the basic version.The advanced Energy [R]evolution scenario increases the share of electricity in the transport sector up to 45%, while the use of biofuels/biomass has been reduced and shifted towards the power sector and industrial heat processes.
Both Energy [R]evolution scenarios assume measures to change the current pattern of car sales, with one third in future taken up by medium-sized vehicles and more than half by small vehicles. Technical progress increases the share of hybrid vehicles significantly. Incentives to use more efficient transport modes reduce vehicle kilometres travelled to an average of 11,000 km per annum.
