Emerging Technologies and Safety in Rail Workshop

The Biden Administration is committed to organizing and deploying the full capacity of its agencies to combat the climate crisis. This government-wide approach is aimed at reducing climate pollution in every sector of the economy; increasing resilience to the impacts of climate change; protecting public health; conserving our land, water, and biodiversity; delivering environmental justice; and spurring well-paying union jobs and economic growth, especially through innovation, commercialization, and deployment of clean energy technologies and infrastructure. [E.O 14008, Section 201, signed January 27, 2021, by President Biden] 

To this end, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) supports the development and deployment of clean energy technologies that can decarbonize the rail transportation sector. 

Please join FRA as we discuss our engagement with the rail industry and with world experts on topics related to the decarbonization of rail transportation. FRA will hold two sessions on this topic: a virtual workshop on November 17, 2022, and in an in-person workshop in Denver, Colorado, in May 2023. Both events will include discussions on the safety, technologies, and operating best practices for improving efficiency, as well as the reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs) from freight and passenger rail systems in the United States and globally.
