Non-CO2 climate impacts of aviation: Contrails
Eliminating the aviation sector’s contribution to global climate change will require two major changes on the technology side.
Hubs and spokes: Extending the reach of hydrogen hubs through clean transportation corridors
Low-emissions hydrogen is a critical component of the climate change solution set, and it is likely to play a significant role in affordably achieving full, economy-wide decarbonization by midcentury.
We need clean firm electricity for a decarbonized energy system
If we’re going to decarbonize, we’re going to need a lot more electricity. And if we’re going to do it successfully, affordably, and reliably, we’re going to need to deploy every type of zero-carbon energy technology available to us.
What does it take to make low-emission hydrogen and ammonia?
Today, 80% of global final energy demand is met by unabated fossil fuels, which release carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants into the atmosphere when burned.
Federal funding can catalyze state action to decarbonize transportation
Coast to coast, dozens of states are considering, or have already adopted, the Advanced Clean Trucks rule (ACT) to help clean up the transportation sector.
Federal Funding Programs to Support Advanced Clean Trucks Implementation
This fact sheet is a resource for state legislatures, governors’ offices, executive branch agencies, businesses, communities, advocates, and others to understand how IRA and IIJA funding can be used for efficient and cost-effective implementation of the ACT rule.
U.S. hydrogen hubs: What comes next?
This blog will outline where things stand with hydrogen hub applicants and what is coming in the next year.
EPA green lights California’s strong clean truck standards in a win for public health
Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted California’s request to waive federal preemption of vehicle emission regulations under the Clean Air Act, allowing the state to implement its suite of clean truck standards and other states to follow suit.
