About this Virtual Panel Series


Overview

Virtual Panel Series on Sustainable Transportation is a series of online panels moderated by civil and environmental engineering students where leaders from the transportation industry and academia are invited to speak about various technical and career development related topics on Sustainable Transportation. The panel series are planned and organized by the Sustainable Transportation Committee (STC) and ASCE-T&DI.

Goal
The goal of the ASCE T&DI webinar series on decarbonization pathways for transportation is to discuss and develop a summary of the scope of the transportation system and relationships with other systems that drive transportation carbon emissions, identify pathways to decarbonizing transportation considering the full system, and share and discuss the results with the civil engineering profession.

Scope
The system definition and pathways will be identified from presentations and discussion with international experts in different areas of transportation and related systems and synthesized by ASCE series organizers and committee members. System elements are expected to include housing, land use, fuels, vehicles, civil and other infrastructure, asset management, freight movement, and travel behavior affecting travel demand and mode choice.
