Location Efficiency and Housing Type: Boiling it Down to BTUs
This study contrasts energy use in conventional, automobile-dependent locations with more location-efficient, transit-oriented locations; multifamily housing construction with single-family detached and attached houses; and conventional cars and homes with their energy-efficient counterparts (e.g., Energy Star homes and hybrid cars). The paper finds that housing type and location, along with energy-use features of homes and vehicles, all have an important role to play in achieving greater energy efficiency.
