Greenhouse gas emissions from transportation account for 15 percent of total global emissions (24% in Canada), making decarbonizing the transportation sector a key focus in the effort to meet the world’s climate goals.
In late November, the Energy Futures Lab (EFL), in collaboration with Alberta Energy, held a one-day
Accelerator workshop sponsored by the Edmonton International Airport with the purpose of convening
relevant collaborators and partners to identify opportunities presented by a low-carbon mobility
future, and to help Alberta overcome the challenges to seizing those opportunities. The objectives of the
Accelerator were to:
- Gain insight into the latest economic, policy and social trends on low carbon transportation;
- Identify points of relevance to Alberta and the implications of these trends to the province;
- Generate enhanced understanding of demand for low carbon transportation technologies
and the feasibility of transport-related technologies as opportunity areas for Alberta;
- Help accelerate initiatives in four key transport-related sectors that can help Alberta thrive in a low-carbon future.
