Perhaps no other sector of the global energy economy has more potential for change than transportation. From new energy-efficient electric and hybrid vehicles, to the creation of a new infrastructure for connecting vehicles to alternative energy and fuel sources, solutions are available today and innovations are just over the horizon that will help the cars and trucks of the future draw on new, more efficient, more carbon-neutral sources of power.
Above all, the keys to a more energy efficient transportation sector are the materials technologies reduce vehicle weight while maintaining the safety, comfort, safety, quality and reliability that are essential to meeting the expectations of vehicle customers and manufacturers. By optimizing the use of energy in each vehicle, today’s solutions and innovations that will soon come to market promise to make the transportation sector an energy answers leader in the 21st century.
Every year, cars and trucks account for billions of dollars in lost energy cost – from the momentum loss of vehicle braking lost as waste brake pad heat, to the loss associated with less than optimal cooling fluids and filters. By paying critical attention to the issue of minimizing energy losses, individuals, industries and economies can meet the world’s need for mobility without sacrificing the performance that is essential for the productivity of the transportation sector.
