Moving towards net-zero carbon emissions in the transportation sector presents a number of technology opportunities and bottlenecks. In this session, moderator Vanessa Chan, director of the Department of Energy’s Office of Technology Transitions, shared her perspective and led three Princeton faculty members (José Avalos, Minjie Chen, Kelsey Hatzell) in a discussion about current technologies for decarbonizing transportation (e.g., electric vehicles, biofuels, fuel cells), needs and areas of active research, and the outlook for achieving net-zero emissions in transportation.
This session was part of Engage 2021, Princeton University’s 2nd annual innovation and entrepreneurship conference. The conference was live-streamed December 1-2, 2021. Engage brings together researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, industry, government, and stakeholders from throughout the innovation ecosystem to catalyze the transformation of research into innovations that impact the world. Engage 2021 was hosted by Princeton Innovation and organized by the Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations. princeton.edu/engage2021
