Global transportation energy and climate roadmap

This report evaluates the impact of transportation policies on worldwide oil consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the potential for the reduction of both out to 2030. Its analysis finds that policies adopted and formally announced since 2000 will dramatically reduce oil consumption and GHG emissions from the transportation sector. Specifically, these policies will slow the growth of global oil consumption and GHG emissions and will result in a reduction of 14 percent in global oil consumption and 7 percent in global economy-wide GHG emissions below 2030 levels in the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s World Energy Outlook. The analysis concludes that spreading the world’s most advanced regulatory standards and cost-effective technologies to other major markets while supporting shifts to low-carbon modes could more than double these impressive reductions, essentially stabilizing global transportation emissions by 2020.
