Insecure and dwindling oil supplies, climate change, air pollution, highway gridlock—these growing problems are strongly linked to transportation. Transportation accounts for 67 percent of U.S. petroleum consumption—while booming world demand, conflict in oil-producing regions, and declining production are wreaking havoc with prices and supplies. Cars, trucks, buses, and other vehicles generate a large and growing share of greenhouse gas emissions, along with smog and particulate pollution.
We don’t have to wait for solutions— CALSTART is acting now. As an internationally known catalyst for the advanced transportation industry, we work with manufacturers, suppliers, fleets, public agencies, and policy makers to bring clean, efficient technologies to market. We get the right partners together for funding, development, and demonstration, and find cost-effective ways to put clean transportation strategies on the street.
