The purpose of this report is to understand the extent to which each transportation technology could be used to help meet the 80% emissions reduction target. This report focuses on end-use demands in the transportation sector (i.e. which vehicle technologies will be used to meet demand for mobility), rather than transportation fuel supply (how those fuels are produced). The report will attempt to answer a primary question as to whether various types of higher efficiency technologies could meet an 80% reduction in fuel use in and of themselves (stress test), and then if not, an important secondary follow up is to determine the potential reduction in fuel demand that could be achieved with the technology (realistic case).
