The Decarbonization Pathways for Transportation panel series is being hosted by the Sustainable Transportation Committee (STC) of ASCE’s Transportation & Development Institute (T&DI). The three-part virtual-event series will provide an overview of the scope, challenges, and opportunities towards transitioning effectively to a decarbonized transportation network.
The series will be launched with an introductory panel on Tuesday, August 31st and will feature leading academics and industry practitioners to discuss different areas including new fuels and vehicles, transportation demand, infrastructure life cycle, and equity.
About this Virtual Panel Series
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.
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.
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.
