Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000079
This Funding Opportunity announcement has two Areas of Interest:
- Systems Level Technology Development, Integration, and Demonstration for Efficient Class 8 Trucks (SuperTruck)
- Advanced Technology Powertrains for Light-Duty Vehicles (ATP-LD)
The goal of Area of Interest 1 is to develop and demonstrate a 50% improvement in overall freight efficiency on a heavy-duty Class 8 tractor-trailer measured in ton-miles per gallon. Over the 3 to 5 year period of this activity, the selected participants will develop, test, and ultimately demonstrate these advanced technologies on a full-scale vehicle.
The goal of Area of Interest 2 is to accelerate the development of cost-competitive engine and powertrain systems for light-duty vehicles capable of attaining breakthrough thermal efficiencies while meeting future emissions standards. Over the three-to-five year period of this activity, the selected participants will develop, test and eventually demonstrate these advanced technologies and the associated efficiency gains on an engine dynamometer and full-scale vehicle.
