Sustainability and energy are frequently used concepts today. This is due to climate change, which has been linked to rising carbon emissions. The transportation sector is one of the sectors that increase carbon emissions. The aim of this study, determined in this direction, is to evaluate the progress of research and applications qualitatively and to share the results by examining the scientific outputs in the field of transportation of the key words containing the concepts of sustainability and energy. The studies in the Web of Science database were evaluated for this, yielding a total of 611 studies. As a research method, Bibliometric Analysis and review of top 10 prominent studies were included. It has been determined that the studies focus on political regulation, searching for the most effective solution with a mathematical model, and city logistics; it has also been determined that technological and academic solutions are still needed in the field.
