Waste Heat Recovery and Utilization Research and Development Funding Opportunity
April 7, 2004
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), has announced a competitive funding opportunity for Waste Heat Recovery and Utilization Research and Development for Passenger Vehicle and Light/Heavy Duty Truck Applications. EERE's FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies Program is soliciting applications for cost-shared research and development in two topical areas to improve the efficiency of internal combustion engines while meeting emissions regulations.
The solicitation seeks to fund projects that will take their technology to full scale for characterization and evaluation on multicylinder engines or equivalent experimental rigs by the end of the period of performance. Fundamental research will be considered for funding under this solicitation when it is focused on a major impediment to a project's progress.
Interested parties can access the funding opportunity announcement through DOE/NETL's Web site. The funding announcement number is DE-PS26-04NT42113.
