US government releases blueprint to decarbonise America’s transportation sector

The Biden administration yesterday released the US National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization. Developed by the departments of Energy, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency, the blueprint provides a strategy for cutting all greenhouse emissions from the transportation sector by 2050.

In the area of maritime transportation, the report notes that, because of the international scope of the industry, “effective decarbonization will require intergovernmental collaboration that aligns with industry and community needs.” Further, as vessels have a long fleet turnover time, “understanding the costs, standards, and requirements is critical for long-term investment planning.”
