The Importance of Life Cycle Assessment in Evaluating the Environmental Performance of Future EVs

Most current policies encouraging the adoption of zero-emission vehicles focus on emissions from vehicle operation only, omitting significant contributions from vehicle production and other parts of the vehicle and energy life cycle. As EVs become more efficient, low-carbon electricity becomes more common, and the size of the global EV fleet increases, emissions from production and other non-operation parts of the life cycle become increasingly important. This webinar will present research on the impact of excluding life cycle emissions from ZEV policies.

Is Hydrogen a Viable Truck Fuel?

This webinar is part of a 3-part webinar series. Visit here to watch webinar 2, and visit here to watch webinar 3.

Watch this recorded webinar to gain insight into:

  • The state of heavy-duty hydrogen fuel cell vehicles today and their future outlook
  • When fuel cell trucks will be in production and available to purchase
  • The differences between hydrogen and electric infrastructure

Get Ready to Charge: Designing and Installing Charging Stations that Support Medium- and Heavy-duty EVs

Designing and installing charging infrastructure to support your fleet’s short- and long-term vehicle deployments is one of the most critical steps in the transition to electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Working with your utility early on in the electrification process streamlines the installation process and can ensure that both the utility-side and customer-side infrastructure are optimized and compatible with your unique operations, while mitigating costly project delays.

Watch this webinar recording to gain insight into:

  • Planning for near-term and long-term site upgrades to support EV deployments
  • Common infrastructure design issues to avoid that may result in delays or added costs
  • How two fleets in Southern California Edison’s territory worked with the utility and electrical contractors to successfully install EV charging infrastructure

Essentials of CNG Station Operation and Maintenance Training

Essentials of CNG Station Operation and Maintenance Training will teach owners, managers, third-party providers and maintenance technicians the maintenance requirements and practices for each station component. It teaches how to develop and implement the required maintenance plan, and how to meet all regulatory requirements. It also covers the practical how-tos of preventive maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting, record-keeping, conducting a safety evaluation and more.

Join NGVI on October 12-15, 2020 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. MST each day for live, instructor-led training in a virtual classroom.

For CNG fueling station owners, operators and third-party maintenance contractors, this course provides the knowledge necessary to design and implement a successful maintenance plan that ensures the highest level of equipment and system reliability and fuel quality required by today’s NGV operators.

Understanding Biodiesel’s Life Cycle Environmental Impact and New Indirect Land Use Science

You may already know that biodiesel is good for the environment, but transparent, reliable science reinforcing its benefits will help ensure its rightful place in the American energy landscape. A new study on biodiesel’s lifecycle energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions updates and reaffirms the long-understood benefits of using the renewable fuel. The report, recently published by collaboration between Argonne National Laboratory, Purdue University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, represents the most up-to-date and comprehensive lifecycle analysis of biodiesel ever produced.

The lifecycle assessment of biodiesel includes indirect land use change (ILUC), the theory which suggests that economic benefits from renewable fuels impact farming patterns globally. In this webinar, you’ll hear the facts from leading scientists, supporting why biodiesel has the highest GHG reduction of any heavy-duty transportation fuel, and how it reflects biodiesel’s natural ability to store solar energy in a liquid form.
