    WEBINAR | Learn more about Department of Energy’s Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Prize

    On Wednesday, April 10th at 2:00 pm CST, the U.S. Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory held an informational webinar on the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Prize. David Howell, Acting Director of the Vehicle Technologies Office provided an overview of the goals and vision for the prize, followed by an overview of the rules, timing, and tracks for submission. The Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Prize is a $5.5-million phased prize competition designed to incentivize American entrepreneurs to develop and demonstrate processes that, when scaled, have the potential to profitably capture 90% of all discarded or spent lithium-based batteries in the United States for eventual recovery of key materials for re-introduction into the U.S. supply chain.

    WEBINAR | Medium- & Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicle Charging Roadmap

    Join ACTNews for a complimentary webinar on Thursday, April 4 at 12 PM CST presented in partnership with the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE).

    Charging infrastructure has been identified as one of the largest unknowns and sources of anxiety for fleets considering near-term adoption of medium- and heavy-duty battery electric vehicles. And while there is no one-size-fits-all solution to charging, there are key steps every fleet needs to consider to ensure they have a cost-effective charging strategy in place.

    Participate in this webinar to gain insight into:

    • Key stakeholders to engage when establishing a charging plan
    • Realistic timelines for site planning, permitting and charger installation
    • Appropriate charging station hardware options to support your vehicles and duty cycles
    • How smart load management can make or break the economics of charging
    • Strategies and programs utilities are deploying to support vehicle electrification

    WEBINAR | Transportation Energy Partners Policy Updates

    Transportation Energy Partners led a discussion on what the Democratic leadership of the House means for alternative fuels and infrastructure projects, an update on expired tax incentives, TEP's policy priorities for 2019 and the objectives for the Energy Independence Summit 2019.

    Presenters also provided details on the outlook for federal alternative energy policies and how to prepare for upcoming conversations with members of Congress and their staff members. View the recorded webinar below:


    WEBINAR | Fuel Cell Electric Buses: Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets

    The Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) presented a live webinar titled "Fuel Cell Electric Buses: Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets" on May 17, 2018. Leslie Eudy of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) discussed progress made toward meeting technical targets for fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs). In 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) established technical targets to measure the progress of FCEBs toward commercialization. Targets include performance metrics such as fuel cell hour accumulation, fuel economy, availability, and reliability. Cost targets include capital, major components, and maintenance. NREL, under funding from both DOE and FTA, has been evaluating the performance of FCEBs compared to these technical targets and to conventional buses in similar service. This webinar provided recent performance results from FCEBs operated by six transit agencies. View the recorded webinar below:

     


    WEBINAR | The Power of Waste: Renewable Natural Gas as a Vehicle Fuel
    Previously recorded

    Recording from the Energy Vision and Louisiana Clean Fuels hosted Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) webinar on Wednesday, September 23.

    In response to EPA tightening emissions standards for landfills and farmers, LCF and Energy Vision are teaming up to bring together experts from across the country to help farms, waste water treatment facilities and landfills learn how to harvest their methane emissions and turn it into a valuable resource - renewable natural gas! CNG fleets are also invited to learn about another way to fuel their natural gas vehicles.
