NREL Steers America Toward Energy Independence Video (Text Version)

Below is the text version of the NREL Steers America Toward Energy Independence video.

Transportation energy independence means the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want, however you want―without getting stuck in traffic or emptying your wallet at the pump.

It means maximizing our use of domestic energy resources, celebrating American ingenuity, and finding cost-competitive ways to move people and goods more efficiently.

NREL research is giving Americans even more freedom in getting from Point A to Point B with high-performing vehicles and cleaner fuels from right here in the United States, and revolutionary breakthroughs that will completely change how we think of transportation.

Our country’s spirit of independence, its wealth of energy resources, and NREL’s scientific ingenuity—together, we’re driving our nation forward.
