Please join Energy vs. Climate and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Amy Meyers Jaffe, Research Professor and Managing Director of the Climacy Lab at Tufts University, presenting a webinar titled Decarbonizing Transportation on Thursday, April 8, 2021 from 10:00am – 11:00am (MT).
From personal transportation to long haul freight, how fast can we decarbonize, how much will be electrified vs other solutions, and what are the limiting factors affecting the pace of change? They’ll dig into what the transition will mean for Alberta and Canada in terms of demand for oil, changes to local transportation infrastructure, and the potential to capture a part of the new market.
