Transport accounts for 25 percent of global energy related greenhouse gas emissions and over half of the world’s oil consumption. The energy consumption is growing at a rate higher than any other sector. The thesis addresses some of the shortcomings with current policy strategies for reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector. The thesis fosters an in depth discussion of how geographical transfer effects, trade off effects and rebound effects are present in energy and climatic mitigation strategies in the transport sector. A better understanding of this could give an improved foundation for policy makers to find strategies and actions to limit such effects and their consequences.
