Interoperable Transit Data: Enabling a shift to mobility as a service

Report or White Paper, 2015
Personal mobility in the U.S. is dominated by personally owned vehicles, accounting for more than 80 percent of trips. Personally owned vehicles produce 15 percent of U.S. and 10 percent of global emissions, account for 30 percent of global oil combustion, sit unused over 95 percent of their lives, and consume 27 percent of income in U.S. median- income households. A mobility system dominated by—and often reliant upon—costly personal vehicles leaves many lower-income individuals and families without access to affordable mobility.

A Farewell to Fossil Fuels: Answering the Energy Challenge

Journal or Magazine Article, 2012

In this article published in Foreign Affairs, Amory Lovins describes a U.S. transition from fossil fuels--a blueprint detailed in Reinventing Fire-- that requires pursuing three agendas. First, radical automotive efficiency can make electrification affordable and save fuel in heavy vehicles; and all vehicles can be used more productively. Second, new designs can make buildings and factories several times more efficient than they are now. Third, modernizing the electric system to make it diverse, distributed, and renewable can also make it clean, reliable and secure. Getting the U.S. off fossil fuels would transform its foreign policy, and turbocharge global development. He argues that we don't have to wait for congress to seize these opportunities.
