From personal transportation to long haul freight, how fast can we decarbonize, how much will be electrified vs other solutions, and what are the limiting factors affecting the pace of change?
Join David, Sara, Ed, and special guest Amy Myers Jaffe, research professor and managing director of the Climate Policy Lab at Tufts University, on Thursday, April 8 at 10 a.m. MT / 12 p.m. ET as they break down the steps to decarbonizing transportation.
They’ll dig into what the transition will mean for Alberta and Canada in terms of demand for oil, changes to local transportation infrastructure, and the potential to capture a part of the new market.
