Vehicle Technology Integration
NREL offers technical expertise and builds strong partnerships for integrating emerging vehicle technologies.
We have expertise in the implementation of advanced transportation projects, encompassing alternative fuels, mobility systems, electric vehicles, fleet operation, and transportation efficiency.
Project Leadership and Strategy
To improve the outcome of advanced transportation projects, we help early technology adopters overcome planning and implementation barriers, learn from past experiences, anticipate future challenges, and share knowledge with other fleets.
Advanced Transportation Data and Tools
We develop credible, validated, and up-to-date transportation statistics, data, and tools.
Managed by NREL, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) fuel-neutral resource featuring comprehensive, peer-reviewed information, data, and tools.
Developed by NREL, a comprehensive DOE database of alternative fueling stations in the United States and Canada.
Data clearinghouse of medium- and heavy-duty commercial fleet vehicle operating data to help fleet managers make decisions that maximize efficiency and return on investment.
Developed by NREL, a DOE tool for tracking Federal agencies’ fleet fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and vehicle inventories.
NREL's independent, third-party analysis of hydrogen fuel cell technologies in real-world operation.
Detailed transportation data from a variety of travel surveys and studies conducted across the nation.
Building Strong and Extensive Partnerships
We build time-tested partnerships with industry and government leaders that benefit from shared interests and leverage our world-class research, tools, and expertise to address real-world transportation challenges. In turn, these partnerships prepare the market for broad adoption of emerging transportation technologies.
U.S. Department of Energy Programs
NREL provides technical leadership for the following DOE programs:
We also lead DOE’s regulatory activities mandated under the Energy Policy Act (EPAct). This includes helping roughly 2,000 state and alternative fuel provider fleets understand their compliance options. For more information, see DOE’s State & Alternative Fuel Provider Fleets Annual Reports.
Translating Lessons Learned
NREL often translates lessons learned from technical assistance activities into DOE resources, many of which describe best practices.
