Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue “Energy and Information Management in Sustainable Transportation” is focused on sustainability, which is one of the main challenges of the modern world. New methods have to be elaborated to ease the environmental effects of transportation. Studies related to improving the efficiency of transport systems, including proper energy management are welcome. This Special Issue will also draw the industry managers’ and researchers’ attention to information services that support the implementation and use of new mobility solutions. Thus, papers related to information systems and advanced mobility services are welcome in this Special Issue.

Climate change and its consequences have been the focus of significant attention in recent years. Decreasing the environmental effects of transportation is essential for all stakeholders. Recent technological developments have a great impact on the operation of vehicles. Furthermore, understanding and influencing traveler behavior are fundamental to the development of new mobility services. An increasing number of scholars call for more sophisticated research and new methodologies in the area of sustainable transportation. Therefore, this Special Issue “Energy and Information Management in Sustainable Transportation” welcomes papers covering various methods to improve the efficiency of transportation and energy management, different information services that support the implementation of new solutions, and any research that may contribute to the environmentally-friendly transportation.

Topics covered in the Special Issue include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Intelligent transport systems (ITS)
  • Sustainable transport
  • Environmentally-friendly travel solutions
  • Electromobility
  • Smart grid services
  • Optimization of energy usage in transport networks
  • Information and communication technology (ICT)
  • Shared mobility services
  • The external cost of transport
