Unlocking funding for climate action in U.S. transportation



Why do we need to decarbonize the transportation sector? 

Nearly one-third of U.S. emissions come from the transportation sector. Over 90% of fuel used for transportation is petroleum based. The U.S. is committed to 50-52% reduction in emissions by 2030, and a net-zero economy by 2050. These reductions will require reducing emissions across all types of transportation, including hard to decarbonize sectors like long-haul trucking, aviation, and marine shipping with the deployment of more low-and zero-carbon fuels. 

The resources below share information about available federal funding to help decarbonize the transportation sector, explain technology options to achieve decarbonization goals, and support the deployment of clean energy projects with helpful research, tools, and education materials.
