City Efforts to Realize Low-Carbon, Equitable Transportation

Date and time: Thursday, December 10, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET

Transportation has replaced the power sector as the largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the United States. Local governments and metropolitan regions play a critical role in maximizing this sector’s energy efficiency, reducing its GHG emissions, and working to ensure that all residents benefit from an accessible, efficient transportation system. Those efforts face new challenges as COVID-19 has had a severe impact on shared transportation, hampering transportation modes that are key to reducing GHG emissions.

Research from ACEEE’s 2020 City Clean Energy Scorecard shows that some cities have taken key steps over the past 18 months to reduce transportation-related emissions, with several municipalities releasing sustainable transportation plans and four cities (of 100) taking new steps to create compact, transit-oriented communities. However, our research also suggests that all cities can do much more, including adopting vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) reduction targets and tracking progress toward meeting them.

Join us to discuss ACEEE’s research findings and learn from two leading cities. Officials from Minneapolis and Washington, DC will discuss their strategies to reduce transportation-related emissions and inequities.
