This report was published by the Canadian Energy Systems Analysis Research (CESAR), a supporter of The Transition Accelerator. 

This is the second report in our ‘Future of Freight’ Series. It focuses on how the four alternative, low-carbon energy systems for freight movement in Alberta stack up against the incumbent fossil diesel based energy system in terms of the efficiency of energy and dollar flows, the magnitude of greenhouse gas (GHG) and air emissions and the ‘fit for service’ to meet the needs of the freight sector.
