Descripción
This paper studies the energyconsumption and subsequent CO2 emissions of road highway transportation under three tollsystems in Spain for four categories of vehicles: cars, vans, buses and articulated trucks. The influence of tollsystems is tested for a section of AP-41 highway between Toledo and Madrid. One system is free flow, other is traditional stop and go and the last tollsystem operates with an electronic toll collection (ETC) technology. Energyconsumption and CO2 emissions were found to be closely related to vehicle mass, wind exposure, engine efficiency and acceleration rate. These parameters affect, directly or indirectly, the external forces which determine the energyconsumption. Reducing the magnitude of these forces through an appropriate toll management is an important way of improving the energy performance of vehicles. The type of tollsystem used can have a major influence on the energy efficiency of highway transportation and therefore it is necessary to consider free flow.
