A Carbon Emission Calculation Model for Roadside Parking

Publication Date Feb 16, 2021


With the sustained and rapid development of China’s national economy, the number of motor vehicles owned by families in cities is rapidly growing. Consequently, problems of traffic congestion and air pollution have also appeared in these cities. Roadside parking traffic has also become an important part of the transportation system in cities. However, there is no specific measurement model for carbon emissions caused by roadside parking in the proposed traffic carbon emission model. Therefore, we aim to establish a carbon emission measurement model for roadside parking. In this paper, we first study the characteristics of the deceleration and maneuvering of parking vehicles and the blocking impact on running vehicles in a typical roadside parking scenario. We then establish and fit models of the direct and indirect carbon emissions during roadside parking. Based on the carbon emission model, we propose a calculation method for roadside parking carbon emissions, including accounting and estimation methods. These models can be used to calculate the carbon emissions from roadside parking in a traffic carbon emissions system. We also hope that these models will help future research on the optimization of roadside parking facilities for energy saving and emission reduction.
