Sustainable Transportation: Advanced Vehicle Technologies, Electrification, and Next-Generation Mobility

When: Thursday, February 4, 2021 -- 1:30 - 3:00 PM ET

This webinar was developed by the ITE Sustainability Standing Committee.

Webinar Description:

The webinar will introduce the U.S. Department of Energy's Sustainable Transportation programs, specifically transportation electrification and next-generation mobility, and present research occurring in these areas at Idaho National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Argonne National Laboratory.

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) leads U.S. researchers and other partners in making transportation cleaner and more efficient through solutions that put electric drive vehicles on the road and replace oil with clean domestic fuels. Through their Vehicle, Bioenergy, and Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies offices, EERE advances the development of next-generation technologies to improve plug-in electric and other alternative-fuel vehicles, advanced combustion engine and vehicle efficiency, and produce low-carbon domestic transportation fuels.

The Vehicle Technologies Office supports research, development (R&D), and deployment of efficient and sustainable transportation technologies that will improve energy efficiency and fuel economy. These technologies increase America’s energy security, economic vitality, and quality of life. The Energy Efficient Mobility Systems (EEMS) Program envisions an affordable, efficient, safe, and accessible transportation future in which mobility is decoupled from energy consumption.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Awareness and understanding of the current space as it relates to advanced vehicle technologies and next-gen mobility both today and where it is going in the future.
