Efficient Railroads Needed to Help Curb Fuel Consumption in Iran Efficient Railroads Needed to Help Curb Fuel Consumption in Iran

Total annual energy consumption in Iran is almost equal to the energy produced by burning 1.4 billion barrels of crude oil.
The Iran Fuel Conservation Company says more than 35% of the energy is consumed in buildings. Industries and agriculture account for 24% and 17% respectively and the remaining (24%) or the equivalent of 320 million barrels is used for transportation.
Regarding energy consumed in the key transportation sector, gasoline, diesel and natural gas comprise 48%, 34% and 15% respectively.
Energy officials, including Mohsen Delaviz the head of IFCC, say the massive energy consumption for transporting people and goods is rooted in old and dilapidated vehicles plus poor intra-city and intercity railroads.
