Training Manual on Methodologies for Data Collection on Energy Use by the Transport Sector
The publication will serve as reference material on methodologies for data collection on energy use by the transport sector, models for estimation (Supply and Use) and case studies from the Arab Region” with case studies on Morocco, Tunisia, Palestine and from one developed country (Canada). The publication is divided in six main parts: Starting with a brief introduction of the importance of energy use data in part one, the second part describes the standard transportation organisation based on actors, mode of transport and type of energy. More details are provided about the road transport with distinction between passengers and goods and highlighting difficulties faced between different actors and their coordination process. The third part explains the commonly used methodologies for data collection of the transport sector focusing more on road transport of passengers and goods and the sector' standard actors. Fourth part discusses designing surveys in details. It explains the main stage of the guide, then describes the principles that need to be analysed in final energy consumption surveys for the transport sector, which concerns all the economic activity sector and mode of transport, also included the sample design to get data on target variables. Questionnaires samples are attached as part of the annex VI. The fifth part describes the existing models for estimating energy statistics covering both supply and demand, and highlighting through widely used software forecasting and planning details for transport sector and experiences according to models categories. Finally, the sixth part presents the case studies from one developed country and other relevant experiences from countries of the Arab region presenting the experience of Morocco which included all energy consumers sector for transport purposes, then the Tunisian one at the level of transportation companies and gas stations, and conclude with the methodology used in Palestine for the public transport companies' survey. The publication concludes with contribution to proposing a plan for obtaining information on energy use in the different sectors.
