Project Goals

1. Study interdependencies between energy, freight, and passenger transportation systems

2. Identify and model de novo infrastructures

3. The following are goals for this step:

  • a. Formulate multi-commodity network flow
  • b. Develop decomposition techniques
  • c. Provide high-performance computing solutions
  • d. Identify Pareto front of solutions to balance NETSCORE

4. Provide a national blueprint and modeling process: energy policy for state and federal research and investment for the next 40 years

5. Transform engineering educational programs: create new breed of 21st-century engineer having multidisciplinary skills
