Natural Gas Vehicle Research Workshop

The U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office sought input from natural gas vehicle stakeholders to understand and prioritize research needs to increase the efficiency and reduce emissions of medium- and heavy-duty natural gas vehicles.

The U.S. Department of Energy and teams at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory invited natural gas vehicle stakeholders to share their challenges and ideas in a collaborative meeting.

The Natural Gas Vehicle Research Workshop was held at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado.
