The transportation sector is globally the second biggest source of Greenhouse Gas emissions, and therefore a major contributor to Climate Change. It is hence incumbent on Transportation researchers to identify and develop solutions that reduce the carbon footprint of this sector. These solutions span the domains of battery technology, transportation operations and maintenance, and urban planning.
