About the Project
Most U.S. energy usage is for electricity production and vehicle transportation, two interdependent, critical national infrastructures. The strength and number of these interdependencies will increase rapidly as hybrid electric transportation systems, including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and hybrid electric trains, become more widely used. The 21st Century National Energy and Transportation Infrastructures Balancing Sustainability, Costs, andResiliency (NETSCORE-21) research project (Award #0835989) is motivated by a recognition that tools, knowledge, and perspective are lacking to design a national system integrating energy and transportation infrastructures while accounting for interdependencies between them, new energy supply technologies, sustainability, and resiliency. Hence, the goal of this research is to formulate optimal infrastructure designs in terms of future power generation technologies, energy transport and storage, and hybrid-electric transportation systems, with balance in sustainability, costs, and resiliency.
