    Abstract

    The main objective of this study was to determine the global potential of ICT-enabled solutions in reducing CO2 emissions from road transport. The secondary objective was to identify the relative significance of various ICT-enabled transportation solution alternatives. The focus was limited to application areas concerning private road transport. Many solutions and measures have been proposed in recent years, not least due to ever-tightening policies on climate change. Most of the planned or already implemented solutions are intended either to reduce the driven mileage through a modal change from personalized motorized transportation to e.g. less polluting public transportation or ride sharing, or to reduce the emissions from each vehicle through motor technology, aerodynamics, weight, and tyre friction etc., but also by guiding traffic onto less congested routes, hence affecting individual vehicle energy consumption and related emissions. Achieving the goals in cutting CO2 emissions in the transport sector will require a vast array of measures. The new systems alone are not enough; people, drivers and travellers will all need to put the new technology to use as well as modifying their travelling behaviour.
