US Department of Energy announces grants amounting to $68.5 million towards researching Advanced Vehicle Technologies


U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced up to $68.5 million in available funding for early-stage research of advanced vehicle technologies that will enable more affordable mobility, strengthen domestic energy security, and enhance U.S. economic growth.


“Transportation is fundamental to the American way of life," said Secretary Perry. “Investing in early-stage research of advanced transportation technologies can give families and businesses greater choice in how they meet their mobility needs while reducing energy costs and making our transportation more efficient and reliable."

Funded through the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, projects selected through this Vehicle Technologies Office funding opportunity will address priorities in advanced batteries and electrification, including cyber security related to electric vehicle charging; materials for both lighter weight vehicle structures and advanced powertrains; technology integration and energy-efficient mobility systems; and engines and fuels, including technologies for off-road applications as well as the co-optimization of engines and fuels.

Topic areas for this funding opportunity include the following:

  • Batteries and Electrification (up to $27 million)
  • Materials (up to $6 million)
  • Technology Integration (up to $20 million)
  • Engines/Fuels: Off-road Applications (up to $3.5 million)
  • Co-optimization of engines and fuels (up to $12 million).
