The Future of Transport in Australia will look at how Australians’ might get around in the low carbon cities of the future. Will we drive electric, hydrogen or biofuel powered cars? Or will the public transport system be revolutionized and private vehicles become a thing of the past? Will domestic air-travel be replaced with high-speed rail? This seminar brings together experts in research, policy and industry to explore these questions, discuss what technologies could be used to decarbonise Australia’s transport system and the realities of the challenges associated with bringing these online.
