How to explain the past trends in transport CO2 emissions in France (1960-2017)?

2019
Authors :
Aurélien Bigo

This paper analyses the drivers of French transport CO2 emissions over the period 1960-2017. A decomposition analysis is used to evaluate the relative contribution of five key drivers of passenger and freight transports emissions: transport demand, modal shift, vehicle load factor, energy efficiency and carbon intensity of the energy.
