On the Road with Alternative Fuels: Progress in Deploying New Vehicle and Fueling Infrastructure

Thursday, January 11, 2018, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center 2018
Marianne Mintz, Argonne National Laboratory; Diane Turchetta, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA); Michael Scarpino, OST-R/Volpe Center, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Alternative Transportation Fuels and Technologies; Special Task Force on Climate Change and Energy; Standing Committee on Transportation and Air Quality; and Standing Committee on Transportation Energy

Several recent developments—new technologies, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, and the Volkswagen consent decree—have reinvigorated efforts to deploy alternative-fuel vehicles and the infrastructure needed to integrate these vehicles into the marketplace. This workshop hosts facilitated discussions of attendee experiences and lessons learned on such topics as Level 2 charging, DC fast charging, 150-kW fast chargers, compressed and liquid natural gas fueling, establishing corridors for alternative-fuel vehicles, and more.
