"Solutions for Reducing Energy Consumption and Pollutant Emissions from the Road Transportation Sector"

On September 23 join Dr. Tiago Farias to discuss the key solutions available for reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emissions from road transportation, including alternative fuels, new propulsion systems (such as hybrids, plug ins or fuel cells), mobility management and behaviour change. Available technologies and promising future solutions will be compared from a full life cycle perspective, and examples of results obtained at ITS - Lisbon using numerical simulators and a PEMS (Portable Emission Measurement System) laboratory will be presented.
SMART member Professor Jonathan Levine will moderate. Thanks to the National Science Foundation Human and Social Dynamics program, the event is open to the public and free of charge.
