Is There a Chance to Limit Transport in Slovenia in the Light of the Climate Change? Top Down Approach for Personal Vehicles

Marko Kovač, Matjaž Česen, Andreja Urbančič, and Stane Merše

Abstract— Slovenia is a quite transport intensive country. Due to its geographic location it attracts a lot of transit traffic, however even bigger issue might be mostly car-oriented development of traffic in the last 50 and more years. The motorisation rate is still increasing, however even smaller cities are facing long congestions. Slovenian National Energy and Climate Plan anticipates large reduction of greenhouse gasses either through switch to sustainable transport or relying on alternative fuels as renewable electricity or synthetic gasses. The paper demonstrates the somewhat ambitious plan dissected to the local community level while taking local specialties into the account.

Index Terms— Transport, emission reduction, municipalities, statistics.
