Who is the environmental sustainability leader in energy efficient transportation? It may well be the U.S. military, says Amory Lovins in this University podcast. He discusses the military's efforts to develop and implement energy efficient design, which may one day provide the catalyst for a transformation in the commercial transportation industry. Meanwhile, he criticizes the automobile industry's reluctance to wholly abandon the asymmetric design and inefficient platforms of today. This is the second of a two-part presentation on “Energy Efficiency in Transportation” and is the third in a series of five talks on energy efficiency by Lovins.
Amory B. Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute cofounder, chairman, and chief scientist, is a consultant and experimental physicist educated at Harvard and Oxford. He advises governments and major firms worldwide on advanced energy and resource efficiency, and has led the technical redesign of $30 billion worth of facilities in 29 sectors to achieve large energy savings at typically lower capital cost.
