Drivers of passenger energy consumption
The energy consumption for passenger Increased by 29 Mtoe between 2000 and 2018.
This is mainly due to the fact that energy savings (34 Mtoe) (change in specific consumption per unit of traffic) have only partially offset the effect of traffic growth (58 Mtoe). There was a negligible impact of modal shift, as the share of public transport in passenger traffic did not change much.
