The Future of Mobility: Decarbonizing Transportation for Net-Zero 2050 (Engage 2021)
Moving towards net-zero carbon emissions in the transportation sector presents a number of technology opportunities and bottlenecks. Our moderator, an innovator who has worked across a wide range of ecosystems and directs the DOE’s Office of Technology Transitions, will share her perspective and lead three Princeton faculty members 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.
