Evaluating the emissions and costs of light-duty vehicles

Marco Miotti


Marco Miotti is a doctoral student at the Institute for Data, Systems and Society (IDSS) at MIT. He received his S.M. in Environmental Engineering and his B.S. in Environmental Sciences from ETH Zurich. Before coming to MIT, he worked on projects related to industrial ecology and technology assessment in Germany, China, Colombia, and Switzerland. His research focuses on evaluating the emissions reduction potential and adoption potential of light-duty vehicle technologies against climate change policy goals from the perspective of the consumer as the decision maker.


Light-duty vehicles and related supply chains contribute almost 25% to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Technological alternatives for fuels and powertrains have been proposed as a means to reduce the carbon intensity of... [ view full abstract ]
