Webinar Series: The Future of Light-Duty Vehicle Technologies and Infrastructure

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee is collecting information for its study on the cost and effectiveness of fuel efficiency technologies for light duty vehicles in the 2025-2035 time period. As part of the information gathering, we will host webinar series to hear from a variety of public and private sector experts in particular technology topics. Learn more about the study at and register for a webinar on one or more of the topics listed below. The following list will be updated as more dates become available throughout 2019.

When registering, you have the option to select each webinar you'd like to attend. If you select a webinar whose date is TBD, you'll receive an email when a date has been set.

All webinars will be recorded and posted online.

Webinar 1: Electric Vehicle Fueling Infrastructure
May 2nd, 2019 12:00pm-1:45pm ET

Watch Recording

Projecting the cost and effectiveness of electrification technologies requires also projecting a host of related factors, including electric vehicle adoption rates, infrastructure building and maintenance costs and capacity, consumer behavior, private sector investment, as well as analysis of the barriers to electrification of the US fleet. In this series, we will gather government laboratory, private sector, and international perspectives regarding the barriers and opportunities for deployment of electric vehicle technologies in the US.

Speakers: John Smart (INL), Eric Wood (NREL), Matthew Nelson (Electrify America), Patrick Bean (Tesla), Erik Figenbaum (Norwegian Institute of Transport Economics).

Webinar 2: Materials
May 17th , 2019 11:00am-12:30pm ET

Watch Recording

Advanced materials for light-weighting light-duty vehicles (e.g., aluminum, steel, plastics, and polymers) offer opportunities to improve fuel economy in light-duty vehicles. We will also discuss the applicability of these materials from the 2025 to 2035 timeframe and any costs associated with these materials such as cost per pound, cost per volume, etc.

Speakers: Jose Chirino (LANXESS), Todd Summe (Novelis), George Coates (WorldAutoSteel)

Webinar 3: Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure
June 26, 2019 2:00pm-4:00pm ET

Analyzing the cost and effectiveness of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies in the 2025-2035 time frame requires an estimation of the US capacity for fueling infrastructure. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles offer a huge opportunity to increase the number of zero emission vehicles in the fleet, but they will require significant investments in fueling infrastructure. In this webinar, we will gather government laboratory and private sector perspectives regarding the barriers and opportunities for deployment of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies and fueling infrastructure in the US.

Speakers: Bill Elrick (CaFCP), Amgad Elgowainy (ANL), Dave Edwards (Air Liquide), Jason Munster (Shell), James Kast (Toyota).
