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

Modern transportation is a driver of the global, connected economy. However, increased trade, mobility, and individual travel has caused a rise in energy demand of the sector. In light of this sector’s  dependency on fossil fuels, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation are growing at the highest rate of all end-use sectors. Further, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the transportation sector account for about 30% of all CO2 emissions in developed countries, and for about 23% of overall global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Effective public interventions are necessary to reduce GHG emissions in the transport sector-- one of the only sectors where emissions are still growing. This contest seeks proposals that offer innovative ideas, or build upon existing ones, to significantly reduce GHG emissions in transportation around the world.
