Indicator: Energy consumption in transport

A graph shows final energy consumption in the transport sector between 1991 and 2017 as well as the Federal Government targets. Consumption in freight and passenger transport are shown (2005 = 100).

The Federal Government wants to lower final energy consumption in the freight and passenger sector by 15 to 20 % by 2030 compared to 2005.However, final energy consumption in transport seems to stagnate at a high level with an upward trend in recent years. It will be difficult to reach the target.Since the early nineties, freights and passenger transport have become significantly more efficient. read more


Indicator: Environmentally friendly passenger transport

A graph shows the share of pedestrian, utility cycling, railway and passenger transport services in the overall passenger transport volume. Shown here are the years between 1976 and 2016. There have been two caesuras in methodology in this period.

Since 1976, the share of environmentally friendly passenger transport fell significantly from 24 % to approximately 19 %.However, over the past few years, it has hardly changed at all.The Federal Government's National Cycling Plan 2020 is to support cycling as a means of transport. read more
