my name is Tomas

I study mechanical engineering and I am very interested in ecology.  For that i have a question I would like to ask you. 

On website of EEA[…]by-transport-6#tab-chart_3, there is a chart of final energy consumption by traffic mode. I am interested, what does that mean for road trasport. Is it only energy that is directly transformed to kinetic energy of road vehicles or is lost energy, such as through friction and thermal ineffeciency of heat engine etc. included in said value?

If this is not question for you,perhaps you could point me to the right person. I am considering this topic for my bachelor thesis, so this would greatly help me.

Thank you for your time
