Life-Oriented Transport and Energy Research A Behavioral Perspective

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateur : Zhang Junyi

Couverture de l’ouvrage Life-Oriented Transport and Energy Research
Life-oriented Transport and Energy Research attempts to answer the question ?how to reduce household energy consumption” from a behavioral perspective, throughout extensive literature review and relevant case studies. It adopts a life-oriented approach, which emphasizes cross-domain dependencies with respect to various life choices and allows cross-sectoral collaboration for effective transport and energy policymaking. This book focuses not only on the passenger transport sector, but also the domestics sector. It examines household car ownership and usage, in-home and out-of-home activities associated with energy consumption, the relationship between residential location choice and car ownership connected with self-selection issues, shared mobility and energy consumption. Autonomous vehicles, time use across space driven by use of information and communication technologies, social issues associated with both transport and energy, and energy-saving lifestyles are also covered. This book is a valuable resource for energy researchers, engineers, managers and planners as a reference on the current state of research. It also provides them knowledge about how to reduce energy consumption at the household level from an interdisciplinary perspective, which is useful to graduate students as well. Energy engineers developing technology with a user-centric approach will benefit from the knowledge on user behavior and decision-making. Furthermore, the book offers policy makers comprehensive insights into making more effective policies than traditional approaches.

  • Examines transport and domestics issues associated with energy from a behavioral perspective in an interdisciplinary and comprehensive way
  • Offers an overview of current relevant research and the most recent developments
  • Provides rich information about future research trends and innovative insights into effective policymaking

Prof. Junyi Zhang’s research fields include urban and regional planning, transportation planning, traffic engineering, environment and energy policies, tourism policy, and health policy in the contexts of both developed and developing countries. He is a professor of Regional and Urban Engineering at Hiroshima University, Japan. Prof. Zhang has developed various methodologies (surveys, modeling, policy evaluation, and planning, etc.) and applied them to analyze various issues related to the above fields from an interdisciplinary perspective, especially focusing on human behavior analysis and systematic approaches for about 25 years. In recent years, he has been especially promoting the life-oriented approach for cross-sectoral policies. He has published more than 370 refereed academic papers (more than 60 SCI/SSCI papers) in journals such as Transportation Research Part B, Transportation Research Part D, Journal of Transport Geography, Transportation, Tourism Management, Annals of Tourism Research, Energy Policy, Energy, and Environment and Planning B. He has been serving as a reviewer for more 20 SCI/SSCI journals and as an editorial board member or an associate editor for more than 10 internationally well-recognized journals since 2000. He published several books and was editor-in-chief of the journal “Asian Transport Studies (ATS)” of EASTS (Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies), which is the largest transportation association in the Asian and Pacific region, from 2011 to 2016. Currently, he is one of five board members of the International Association for Travel Behaviour Research (IATBR). He has about 15 years of experience professionally in the field related to the proposed book contents.
