Abstract: the transport sector of india is largely dependent on the energy resources accounting to nearly 11% of its total primary energy use which is predicted to reach 20% by 2030. Fuel usage in transportation sector is bound to increase by 87% in 20 years with a decrease in the available diesel stock and an alarming increase in the demand. Also the growing vehicle population has increased the contribution of vehicular pollution to the urban air pollution from 60% in the year 1990 to 90% in 2010. In order to eliminate these risks the interaction between these sectors should be studied in detail. Since there was a lack of interdisciplinary works involving the sectors of transport energy and emissions interaction based on a systems approach this study is focused on carrying out an in depth study of the same based on systems dynamics principles. The major objective of the work is to study and appreciate the existing energy and emissions scenarios in chennai city, to procure data through inventory on energy requirement and emission standards from transportation sector and to build a system dynamics (sd) model using stella simulation software to determine the energy requirement and emissions levels from the transport sector in the year 2026.
