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

Transportation contributes about 5% to gross domestic product and is an enabler of the global, connected economy. However, the increase in activity has caused energy demand to rise, and due to this sector’s oil dependence, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to increase.  Transportation sector GHG emissions are growing at the highest rate among those from all end-use sectors. Globally, transportation currently accounts for about 25% of energy use related CO2 emissions and around 60% of those emissions are coming from road transport.

This contest seeks proposals that offer innovative ideas, or build upon existing ones, to significantly reduce GHG emissions in transportation around the world.
