Engineering students at SNRE explore technology roadmaps for sustainable transportation

Transparent CarWorking as part of the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center, ESS dual-degree students estimate the environmental impact of alternative vehicle technologies and policies.

Students in the Engineering Sustainable Systems (ESS) graduate program are working to evaluate the impacts of alternative vehicle technologies and strategies such as vehicle electrification, biofuels, and lightweighting on life cycle energy consumption, greenhouse gas emission, and water usage. They shared these results during the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center for Clean Vehicle Consortium (CERC-CVC) Annual Meeting hosted at the University of Michigan at the end of last August.As part of this meeting, they also identified future collaboration opportunities with researchers in academia and industry in both the US and China.
