Contents Notes
Transportation as if people mattered -- Sifting the wheat from the chaff -- Toward electric propulsion -- Neighborhood electric vehicles -- Fuel cells -- Hybrid vehicles -- Accelerating regulatory reform -- Technology policy for sustainable transportation. In Future Drive, Daniel Sperling addresses the adverse energy and environmental consequences of increased travel, and analyzes initiatives and strategies for creating a more environmentally benign system of transportation. He discusses how to exploit the revolution in automotive technologies, why today's auto industry is fundamentally unprepared for the vehicles of tomorrow, why improving technology holds more promise than large-scale behavior modification, and why a. regulatory revolution is needed.
