Transportation Decarbonization Research
NREL is leveraging decades of clean-energy research to conquer technical barriers to decarbonization across the transportation sector—reshaping existing mobility systems for a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable climate future.
Challenge What Is Possible
Reducing transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions through deep decarbonization is a foremost problem in the race against climate change, and we believe the time to move is now.
Bring us your most complex decarbonization challenges, and together we can reimagine what comes next for powering a carbon-neutral U.S. economy by 2050.
Our Multi-Pronged Decarbonization Strategy
To achieve rapid, deep decarbonization of the transportation sector, NREL aggressively pursues a multi-pronged strategy reliant on using abundant sources of renewable energy, such as wind, solar, and bioenergy, coupled with diverse energy storage solutions.
Our strategy provides the scientific building blocks needed to spur innovation through fundamental research and engineering. It enables us to identify the most efficient and effective use of renewable energy by application, while assisting industry stakeholders, communities, and early adopters in making informed implementation decisions.
