DE-FOA-0001706: NOTICE OF INTENT FOR “FY 2017 VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES DEPLOYMENT FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT”
The Vehicle Technologies Office seeks to accelerate the development and widespread use of cutting-edge, advanced transportation technologies that reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Research, development, and deployment efforts focus on a broad portfolio that includes vehicle electrification, advanced engines and fuels, lightweight materials, and other technologies that enable transportation energy efficiency.
VTO seeks to encourage highly-innovative, highly-leveraged, and scalable deployment projects that significantly increase the use of advanced electric drive and alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure, as well as “smart mobility” projects that focus on transportation system-level opportunities to achieve technology-enabled highly energy efficient mobility systems.
It is anticipated that the FOA may include the following Areas of Interest:
1.) Alternative Fuel Vehicle Community Partner Projects
The objective of this area of interest is to accelerate the adoption of commercially available advanced electric drive and alternative fuel vehicles and supporting infrastructure through community-based partnerships among state and local governments and the private sector. These projects will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce U.S. dependence on petroleum, increase local fuel diversification, and catalyze the adoption of clean transportation technologies in other communities through the sharing of best practices and the collection and sharing of data.
2.) Energy Efficient Mobility Systems Projects
The objective of this area of interest is to develop and implement projects, models, and tools that demonstrate and assess the return on investment (ROI) of energy efficient mobility systems that holistically reduces energy consumption while delivering the benefits of new mobility technology. Projects could include, but are not limited to:
- “Living Lab” projects that invite communities to propose how they integrate advanced electric drive and alternative fuel vehicles and/or smart technologies in a holistic approach that maximizes improvement in energy efficiency.
- Projects that demonstrate and assess the efficacy and return on investment (ROI) of electrification and shared mobility initiatives or other new mobility concepts or technologies that improves energy efficiency.
