Event Overview

Please join us for this upcoming webinar featuring presentations by Lew Fulton and Marshall Miller from the Institute of Transportation Studies at University of California, Davis. Our speakers will provide an overview of findings from the white paper from Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways Program (STEPS) and the National Center for Sustainable Transportation (NCST) that examines the feasibility of achieving an 80-in-50 target from freight transport systems,with a focus on U.S. trucking. Several scenarios for achieving this target for trucks will be presented along with a discussion of technical, economic, and other challenges in achieving deep penetrations of low carbon vehicles and fuels, including zero-emission vehicles (ZEV – i.e. battery electric or hydrogen/fuel cell) and vehicles running on biofuels. Policy implications and areas where additional research is needed will also be discussed.

Following the short presentation will be Q & A with participants.
