Online Event: Innovation in Transportation Fuels

September 30, 2020 • 9:00 – 10:15 am EDT

The CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program, with input and support from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Technology Transitions and Chief Commercialization Officer, is pleased to present the fifth session in the Energy Innovation Series.

Innovation in Transportation Fuels will focus on innovation occurring in alternative fuels, including biofuels, power-to-liquids, and hydrogen.

Assistant Secretary of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Daniel Simmons will give a brief keynote address on the Department’s priorities in advancing low-carbon fuels. Nikos Tsafos (CSIS Energy) will then moderate a discussion with John Farrell (NREL) and Bruno Miller (Fulcrum Bioenergy), and Matthew Blieske (Shell Hydrogen) on how various efforts in these categories fit into the innovation chain, from basic science to commercialization and deployment.

About Energy Innovation Series

Energy Innovation Series is a six-part discussion series focusing on specific categories of energy technology and aims to foster greater understanding of―and support for―the role of innovation in the energy system. The series investigates the innovation priorities of the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Laboratory Complex against the broader ecosystem, both domestic and international, for advancing a portfolio of solutions.

This series is made possible by support from ClearPath and the Energy Innovation Fund at National Philanthropic Trust.
