The acronym SAVE stands for Simulation and Analyses of Virtual energy usein Energy scenarios. The goal of the SAVE-model is the analysis of future energy saving possibilities for end users in conjunction with volume growth and structural changes in the socio-economic system. SAVE-Transport is one of the four modules of the model, other modules are Production, Buildings and Households. SAVE is a technical-economic bottom-up model to describe and analyze energy demand per sector for the period 1990-2015. Volume growth is for SAVE-Transport defined as the growth in the number of passenger kilometers or ton kilometers. Structural effects are caused by structural changes in socio-economic or physical variables. Saving effects are caused by the introduction of energy saving techniques as well as social or organisational saving options. The introduction of energy saving techniques can be autonomous or directed by policy measures. SAVE-Transport consists of two parts: passenger transport and freight transport. Each part can be divided in: road, water, rail and air transport. These transport modes are subdivided by means of conveyance. Data of future demand for transportation are an input in this model and will be supplied by other institutes. SAVE-Transport concentrates on the description of the vehicles used, the energy consumption per means of conveyance on a micro level and the effects of policy measures. The modelling of the supply of transport services differ per means of conveyance, because of a difference in importance for energy use (passenger car versus moped) and an other explanatory variable for energy use (vehicle kilometer for passenger cars and seat kilometres capacity for trains). For the passenger car stock the vintage approach is used to describe the time dependent restrictions for penetration of saving measures. The composition of the passenger car stock in time T depends on the composition of the passenger car stock in time T and changes in the relative total costs of the cars from different car classes. 12 figs., 21 tabs., 59 refs., 6 appendices
