Have ideas to reduce transportation system emissions? New York has $3M in funding

Dive Brief:
$3 million will be made available to fund innovative proposals to improve the efficiency of the state of New York’s transportation system, while reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The funding will be available through a partnership between the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Applicants can submit concept papers through October 30, and those that NYSDOT and NYSERDA deem the best will be invited to submit proposals; the partners will select proposals to receive funding. Concept papers must illustrate a broad impact across New York and show innovation in either efficient mobility solutions or efficient infrastructure, operations and systems planning. They should demonstrate new technologies, increase access to alternative modes of transportation or make roads safer.
