The Center on Global Energy Policy and the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis will host Dr. Daniel Sperling, one of the world’s foremost experts on sustainable transportation, for a conversation that will explore the three revolutions in transportation: automated, shared, and electric technologies.

Dr. Sperling aims to move beyond the hype to identify and advance real, equitable solutions. How can we anticipate--rather than react to—environmental, economic, and social challenges associated with transportation innovation?  He’ll be discussing his new book, Three Revolutions: Steering Automated, Shared, and Electric Vehicles to a Better Future. In Three Revolutions, Dr. Sperling, along with seven other co-authors and leaders in the field, share research–based insights on potential public benefits and impacts of the three transportation revolutions. They describe innovative ideas and partnerships, and explore the role government policy can play in steering the new transportation paradigm toward the public interest—creating a dream scenario of social equity, environmental sustainability, and urban livability.
