Freight transport

More information

The demand for freight transportation is calculated as tonnes-km (tkm). The 2050 and 2035 values are an average of the “tkm” demand evolution for the three PROGNOS scenarios [1]. Then the demand is attributed to rail or road transport depending on the value of the Freight transport by train slider.

The trains are considered to be only electric. Their electricity consumption for 2035 and 2050 are an average of the values calculated by PROGNOS [1] for their three scenarios.

The road freight transport assumed to be done by three kind of vehicles, whose shares and fuel economies are presented in the next table. The share is assumed to have the same value for 2011, 2035 and 2050.

Truck/Van Share [12] Fuel consumption [MJ/tkm]
2011 [4]2035 [1]2050 [1]
<3.5 t 6% 14.19 9.84 8.19
3.5 t < truck+freight < 20 t 42% 2.70 1.87 1.56
>28 t 52% 1.24 0.86 0.72
