Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure May 2, 2019
Projecting the cost and effectiveness of electrification technologies requires also projecting a host of related factors, including electric vehicle adoption rates, infrastructure building and maintenance costs and capacity, consumer behavior, private sector investment, as well as analysis of the barriers to electrification of the US fleet. In this series, we will gather government laboratory, private sector, and international perspectives regarding the barriers and opportunities for deployment of electric vehicle technologies in the US.
Speakers: John Smart (INL), Eric Wood (NREL), Matthew Nelson (Electrify America), Patrick Bean (Tesla), Erik Figenbaum (Norwegian Institute of Transport Economics).
Materials for Improved Fuel Economy May 17, 2019
Advanced materials for light-weighting light-duty vehicles (e.g., aluminum, steel, plastics, and polymers) offer opportunities to improve fuel economy in light-duty vehicles. We will also discuss the applicability of these materials from the 2025 to 2035 timeframe and any costs associated with these materials such as cost per pound, cost per volume, etc.
Speakers: Jose Chirino (LANXESS), Todd Summe (Novelis), George Coates (WorldAutoSteel)
Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure June 26, 2019
Analyzing the cost and effectiveness of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies in the 2025-2035 time frame requires an estimation of the US capacity for fueling infrastructure. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles offer a huge opportunity to increase the number of zero emission vehicles in the fleet, but they will require significant investments in fueling infrastructure. In this webinar, we will gather government laboratory and private sector perspectives regarding the barriers and opportunities for deployment of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies and fueling infrastructure in the US.
Speakers: Bill Elrick (CaFCP), Amgad Elgowainy (ANL), Dave Edwards (Air Liquide), Jason Munster (Shell), James Kast (Toyota).
Light Duty Vehicle Safety September 19, 2019
Priya Prasad (formerly Ford), Tom Wenzel (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), Chuck Farmer (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), and Randa Radwan (UNC Highway Safety Research Center) will present on the issue of light- duty vehicle safety particularly on how it relates to mass for the 2025-2035 time period.
