Drivers of goods energy consumption variation (EU)

The energy consumption of freight transport slightly increased between 2000 and 2015. This is the result of two opposite trends: the of increase in traffic in ton-km and, to a lesser extent, modal shift to road transport have contributed to raise consumption (by 17 and 2 Mtoe, respectively), while energy savings have decreased consumption by 17 Mtoe.
