From the National Association of Engineers and the Wisconsin Public Utility Institute:

The health of the US Economy is largely dependent on its mobility. Questions currently taking center stage are: How will we move people and freight around the block and around the world efficiently and cost effectively?

A combination of new fuels, new vehicles, and new ideas is necessary. But what might the right combination be?

This National Academy of Engineering seminar will highlight the perspectives of experts in transportation infrastructure, emissions, biological fuels and vehicle propulsion to discuss "What's next?"
