Transportation is an energy service that is essential for social and economic systems to function properly. Fuels consumed for transportation — mostly gasoline and diesel — are almost exclusively derived from fossil energy sources. As such, the transportation sector is a significant contributor to anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While transportation emissions are from dispersed vehicles, most of the GHG emissions from transportation, particularly those from passenger transportation, are concentrated in urban centers. This has led to many cities around the world, including many in Canada, to explore alternative options to reduce GHG emissions from transportation. These options include fuel and vehicle technology switching, improving vehicle fuel economy, changing operating practices and reducing transportation demand through urban planning.

This event is recognized by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA). Participation hours qualify for the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program.
