Abstract: The ||Environment Energy Budget of Trips|| (EEBT) is a new approach relating the inventory of mobility-related energy consumption and pollutant emissions to individual travel behaviour. As opposed to more traditional inventory methods, it is not intended to determine the overall pollutant emissions generated by traffic. Its purpose is rather to simulate the variations of energy and environmental impacts of the population mobility within a given urban area as a result of the global change in individual behaviour. This paper presents some concluding results obtained on three large French urban regions: Grenoble, Paris and Lille.

Keywords: diagnosis; emissions maps; energy consumption; simulation; urban mobility.
