Mobile Fluid Power Workshop
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office sought input from stakeholders in the commercial, off-road vehicles sector to understand and prioritize the research needs necessary to increase the energy efficiency and reduce emissions of mobile fluid power systems.
This agenda includes presentations featured at the workshop.
