Addressing Energy Efficiency in the Transport Sector Through Traffic Improvement

dc.contributor.editorIchiro Kutani
dc.description.abstractThe study first summarized the existing policies in Viet Nam on energy efficiency improvement of the transport sector. The result of the survey showed that although details and degree differ, Viet Nam has implemented the same type of policies as that of Japan and Thailand. In terms of policy execution, strengthening of stakeholders’ involvement is critical. It is suggested that such mechanism be implemented so that stakeholders themselves be gainfully engaged in improving traffic for improved energy efficiency, rather than simply imposing government policy. The quantitative case study for Da Nang City evaluated effects of implementation or delay or both of long-term traffic plans. The study identified that planned bypass highway will differentiate oil consumption by 30% in 2030. While in the city centre, when assuming increasing modal shift from motorbike to automobile, 10 years’ delay of development of public transport system will increase oil consumption by 5% in 2030. It appears that the existing blueprint of future traffic system is effective to reduce oil consumption, hence should be implemented immediately.
