An ELI Member Webinar

In November 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which provides $1.2 trillion to infrastructure projects and includes $550 billion to the transportation sector.

This investment includes $110 billion into roads, bridges, and other major projects, as well as $66 billion into freight and passenger rails, and $39 billion to public transit systems. With this public investment and ongoing innovation including electric vehicles, low carbon alternative fuels in both ground vehicles and aviation, the transportation sector is headed towards a massive overhaul and appears to be on a greener path.

Join ELI and expert panelists for an in-depth exploration of where the transportation sector is headed in the coming years, including the opportunities and challenges on its way reduce its environmental impact.
