This research has shown the value of comprehensive land use-transportation planning in energy conservation. Piecemeal, incremental urban development is not nearly as energy-efficient and could result in land use patterns with long term adverse transportation energy consumption characteristics. Analytic tools need to be developed to assess the regional and subregional transportation network and energy impacts of medium and large scale development proposals such as industrial parks, shopping centers, and new residential communities. This research has sown that this can be done with a minimum of theoretical model development.
