The paper presents the main results obtained in the Energy Plan of the town of Perugia (Italy), which prominently features traffic aspects. For each possible action in this field, a very detailed technical analysis has been carried out. The actions have been divided into five groups: - traffic planning (infrastructures, traffic restrictions, mobility management); - alternative mobility (lifts, escalators, surface undergrounds and other kinds of public transport); - alternative fuels (biodiesel, bioethanol, “white” gas oil); - alternative vehicles (electric, hybrid, fuel cells); - shared mobility (car pooling, car sharing and others). For each group, technical, environmental, social and economic aspects have been taken into account; particular emphasis has been put on energy saving aspects and on the evaluation of greenhouse gases emissions reduction. The paper gives useful indications to municipalities to choose the best solutions to reduce traffic consumptions and impact on a local scale, according to current technologies.
