The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is hosting the Maritime Decarbonization Action Plan Workshop on December 11 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. ET as an opportunity to discuss the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization (Blueprint) and gather feedback from key stakeholders on approaches to decarbonize the maritime sector and challenges that must be addressed to accomplish its goals.
The U.S. Departments of Energy, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency are developing a Maritime Decarbonization Action Plan as a supplement to the Blueprint. The Action Plan will set a course to decarbonize the U.S. maritime sector between now and 2030 to reach the goal of net-zero U.S. emissions by 2050.
The workshop will engage participants in conversation to better understand the opportunities, challenges, and barriers to fully decarbonizing the maritime sector. Each workshop participant will join one of the breakout sessions associated with a specific vessel type that they feel is relevant to their contributions. Each breakout session will be led by an NREL facilitator and a federal subject matter expert. Register to participate via Zoom.
