Abstract

Transport sector in Croatia represents one of the largest consumers of energy today with a share of almost one third of the final energy demand. That is why improving energy efficiency and implementing different mechanisms that would lead to energy savings in this sector seems relevant. Through this paper long term energy demand projections of Croatian transport sector will be shown. Special emphasis will be given to different mechanisms ; financial, legal but also technological that would influence future energy demand scenarios. Energy demand predictions are based upon end-use simulation model developed and tested with Croatia as a case study. Model combines detailed modal structure of Croatian transport sector including road, rail, air and water transport modes. One of the additional features is the intermodal forms of transport which can be important parameter in energy demand modeling. Based on its importance regarding Croatian energy balance, transport sector represents important part of Croatian energy strategy. One of the major conclusions shown in this paper is significant possibilities for energy efficiency improvements and lower future energy demand, based on careful and rational energy planning.
