NREL Off-Road Decarbonization and Energy Systems Integration Workshop: Challenges and Opportunities

Transportation decarbonization represented by three areas: renewables, site loads, grid, and storage; hydrogen, electrification, and net-zero carbon fuels; and construction, military, agriculture, and mining.

Access presentations from NREL’s workshop on Off-Road Decarbonization and Energy Systems Integration Challenges and Opportunities, held March 22–24, 2022.

The workshop identified research, development, and deployment needs to accelerate technology development and commercialization of off-road decarbonization solutions and explored opportunities for collaboration across government, academia, and industry. View the workshop agenda.
