Cleantech and sustainability is not only about energy efficiency and renewables, it is also about how we move around. So my latest piece for Cleantechies is about traffic congestion. Here is the introduction :

” (…) In these staggering amounts, both direct (wasted time and gas) and indirect (repercussion on the goods and services prices ) costs are incurred.” As usual, please enjoy and share !
