ZERO CARBON AUSTRALIA TRANSPORT PLAN
About the Zero Carbon Australia Transport Plan
Transport accounts for approximately 16 per cent of Australia’s domestic greenhouse gas emissions. Road vehicles account for 85 per cent of this and 14 per cent of Australia’s total domestic emissions. Roads have been at the centre of transport planning for most of the past century but this must change for the years ahead.
Our research into this complicated and diverse area has been undertaken in collaboration with the University of Melbourne's Melbourne Energy Institute, and for High Speed Rail, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).
Some of the areas of research, which will be released in stages, are below:
Urban Public Transport
