What initiatives, policies and technologies can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector?

Modern transportation has become an enabler of the global, connected economy. However, the increase in activity has caused transportation energy demand to rise, and due to this sector’s oil dependence, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation are growing at the highest rate among those from all end-use sectors. This contest seeks proposals that offer innovative ideas, or build upon existing ones, to significantly reduce GHG emissions in transportation around the world.
