AAAS news briefs from UC Davis
Date:2/21/2011

Researchers from the University of California, Davis, will present these findings at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 17-21.

Presentation: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the Transportation Sector
Presenter: Christopher Yang, UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies
Date and time: Friday, Feb. 18, 2 p.m.
Location: 206 Washington Convention Center
Symposium: Portraits of the California Energy System in 2050: Cutting Emissions by 80 Percent

The transportation sector in California is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the state. It is expected to grow significantly over time, due to increasing population and travel demand, especially for air travel and moving goods. Tackling this sector is critical if California is to meet its ambitious greenhouse-gas-reduction targets. This talk will discuss the three main approaches (or "levers") for reducing transportation emissions, including reducing travel demand, improving vehicle efficiency and switching to lower-carbon alternative fuels. Two strategies with high potential are electrification of vehicles to run on hydrogen or electricity, and producing biofuels for use in more conventional combustion engines.
