  • The transportation sector accounts for the largest percentage of US greenhouse gas emissions. In order to meet our climate targets, we must invest in innovation across every mode of transportation to unlock the next generation of EV batteries, demonstrate battery- and hydrogen-powered trucks and locomotives, and develop new feedstocks for sustainable aviation fuels.

    Third Way hosted a virtual event on Thursday, August 12, at 2:00 PM ET to discuss how increased cooperation between the public and private sectors can help accelerate innovation in clean transportation, establish US leadership in clean energy, and meet our climate goals. We heard from industry experts at Toyota, General Motors, Carbon Engineering, and the Association of American Railroads.
