Summary: This talk discusses the main determinants of world passenger transport related GHG emissions, i.e., the demand for transportation, energy intensity of passenger mobility, and the CO2 intensity of transportation fuels. The past development of each determinant and the likely future evolution in a no-new policy situation will be evaluated along with the opportunities for and constraints to reducing each of three factors.The talk closes by exploring whether change in technology is sufficient to achieve CO2 emissions reductions below current levels by midcentury or whether additional measures aiming at behavioural change would be required.
