1 The Norwegian transportation sector, challenges and opportunities How to reduce CO2-emissions substantially within 2-5 years Tempo Conference 31st Jan 2011 Erling Sæther

2 4 ways to reduce emissions from the transport sector Reduce the amount of energy comsumption for a transport mode when performing an activity Reduce the GHG emissions by shifting to alternative energy sources or fuel (consider the w2w-factor) Reduce the transport volume Change the modal split 2

3 Total emissions in Norway per year 55 million tons CO2 Fishing 2,4 % 1,23 mill Production of energy 0,7 % 0,385 mill Heating of buildings4,3 % 2,37 mill Waste 2,4 % 1,23 mill Shipping 4,8 % 2,64 mill Civil aviation1,7 % 0,935 mill Agriculture 8 % (4,4 mill tonn) Land transport 22,0% (12,1 mill tonn) Petroleum 24,7 % (13,6 mill tonn) Industry 28,9 % (15,9 mill tonn) 3

4 Potential for emission reductions 70 If we continue as before Utslipp mill. t CO 2 -ekv/år

5 Potential Potensial for for emission utslippsreduksjoner reductions If we continue Om vi as before fortsetter som før Oil and gas (1 Mt CO2) Building/construction (3 Mt CO2) Transport (4 Mt CO2) Industry (1 Mt CO2) Forestry and agriculture (3 Mt CO2) The climate settlement Stortingets of the Norwegian Parliament klimaforlik

6 Emission from transport 17,5 mill tons CO2 Railway 0,62% (0,1 mill tons) Equipment/tools 4% (2 mill tons) Ocean freight 8 % (4 mill tons) Land transport 22 % (10,4 mill tons) Airfreight 2 % (1mill tons) 6

7 GHG from the Norwegian land transport sector 7

8 Passenger transport Norway modal split on a total yearly basis (Millions) Total Railway Car Underground / tram Bus Boat Airplane Trips Share 100% 1,2% 88% 2% 7% 1% 0,2% 8

9 Passenger transport travel distances and market shares Trips Total Cars Bus/Subway Train Airplane Up to 30 km % % % 40 1% 0 0% km % % 50 12% 5 1% 0 0% km % % 10 8% 5 4% 1 1% Over 400 km % 40 66% 3 5% 3 5% 14 23% Sum % % 463 9,6% 53 1,1% 15 0,3% 9

10 Passenger transport Allocation on means of transport on a total yearly basis / possibilities with a national public transport strategy (Millions) Total Railway Car Underground / tram Bus Boat Airplane Trips Share 100% 1,2 % 1,3 % 88 % 85 % 2 % 2,5 % 7 % 9 % 1% 0,2 % 10

11 In any case: The private car will be dominant in the forseeable future Emission from private cars 6 mill. tons Goal for reduction 20 %: 1.2 mill. tons Road pricing in towns&cities A low mixture bio fuel Parking restrictions - A high scrap vehicle deposit which stimulate the renewal of more environmental friendly cars A change in the tax system which stimulates purchase of Cars with little use of fuel Plug-in hybrid cars Electrical cars Building of charging stations 11

12 Waste gas and particles; heavy vehicles ; The Euro motor is a success Euro 0 (1990) Euro 1 (1993) Euro 2 (1996) Euro 3 (2000) Euro 4 (2005) Euro 5 (2008) Percentage (1990=100) % -81% -86% -97% CO HC NOx Particles 12

13 LTL: 4 point strategy The driver The fuel The vehicle The logistics solutions and way of transport 13

14 The driver: Driving economically a major part of the drivers in LTLmember companies 14

15 The fuel 30 % mix of recyclable fuel 15

16 The vehicle Hybrid vehicles 1. Diesel engine 2. Clutch 3. Electro engine 4. ATM* gearbox 5. PMU steering unit 6. Batteries 7. Energy converter 16

17 The vehicle Module vehicle sets 17

18 Logistics solutions Transport modes Narvik Bodø Fauske Luleå Åndalsnes Trondheim Mo i Rana -70 % of total tonnage out from Oslo goes by railway container movements. - LTL-members are dominant Bergen Oslo Drammen Stavanger Schenker AS Kristiansand 18

19 Summary The four ways 1. Reduce the energy consumption Activities Road pricing, to reduce the total volume & congestions Taxation on parking at employers parking lots Driver training environmetal friendly driving More efficient engines. More weight/volume per vehicle/engine 19 Henrik Schreier, Status RFID February 11

20 Summary The four ways Alternative energy recourses Activities Governmental incentives on bio fuel, clean hydrogen demonstration projects, Plug in hybrid LDV and trucks/buses 20 February 11

21 Summary The four ways Reduce transport volume Activities Area planning in cities, housing&work co-located Less long distance cargo transportation (far East to Europe) Increase use of home office activities when on work. 21 February 11

22 Summary The four ways Change modal split between transport means Activity Governmental investments in public passenger systems Subsidy in public passenger transport to reduce ticket price &/or to offer high frequency and extensive coverage on the road network Shift from cargo trucks to rail transport A national bicycle strategy, ex 10% of all short trips in towns on bicycle 22 February 11
